So, back in January I posted this image of the view from my writing desk (AKA the kitchen table):

Thought you'd like to see what spring looks like in NorCal!

The gorgeous leafy tree is, I believe, a type of acacia and the one with the pink popcorn balls is a variety of Japanese cherry. During the summer, it's incredibly lush and full with deep green leaves, during the fall it glows golden, and during the winter its branches are slender and elegant. It's a great tree.


  1. I cannot see the pix, but I like your description just fine.

  2. ooo, purty trees!! spring feels so far away here in New England, but on a walk yesterday I saw a few crocuses in bloom and lots of buds on trees and bushes. so exciting!
