Photo Op!



I arrived home after ten hours away....working at the office all day... to find that the Japanese cherry tree had burst into bloom......



I was instantly energized and ran into the house to find my camera.....it was a photo op!























































Sigh......We love and are grateful for the beautiful gifts of spring!

Hi Liv!
Teddy is very very old.....early 1900's....he belonged to a family friend....and I can see from the photograph that he is very dusty! He needs a good cleaning....but he is dear..isn't he?
