The cherry (plum?) tree in front of the library is beginning to blossom! I discovered last year that this particular tree is among the first to bloom in my ‘hood, so I was planning to watch for it, but I wasn’t expecting to see it this early. This isn’t my favorite composition – that ugly book-drop bin next to the tree is a bit distracting – and if I’d waited until this afternoon, the light would have moved from the back to the front, but I got so excited that I couldn’t wait. Spring is on its way!
