Here’s some shots of our house, also taken two weeks ago. We have a large tree next to our driveway that turns out to be some type of flowering tree. Very pretty indeed! And apparent proof that spring had indeed arrived.
Our neighborhood looked pretty all up and down the street. This is a quiet street with lots of trees and well-tended front yards. Almost every house had a flowering tree with lots of color.
A few days after the tree came out in bloom, the flowers started dropping off. It almost looked like snow, with all the flowers covering the driveway, lawn, boat and trailer.

Wishing everyone a Happy Easter celebration, and the start of a wonderful springtime ahead!
