Spring is sprangin’ here at last. Took the dog for a walk through the neighborhood yesterday and brought my camera with me. There’s a tree over on Westover that knocks my socks off every year, it’s a weeping cherry I think.

The magical tree

It looks like it belongs in some elven wood somewhere in middle earth.

My neighbors Nan and John also have an early spring knockout. I look forward to it popping each spring. Last year, the phone company  came out and hacked it up, so I was worried that it might be a little less spectacular this year. Wrong. What a lovely thing to wake up to each morning.

place. There’s an old tobacco barn in the woods behind this wall of yellow but I couldn’t get a succesful shot of it.

Have a great spring!
