Flowering tree on the soccer pitch. I thought this was a quince tree, but now I’m not so sure… I think is actually a Kwanzan Cherry. Its beautiful at any rate, as the first blooms of the season always are.
Spring, Spring, Spring! My absolute favorite time of year (until fall rolls around). So happy and hopeful and beautiful! I love watching the buds thicken every day and then oh so slowly start blazing with with color. The trees. The bushes. The bulbs. The rain that highlights all the color. It’s like fairies fly thru every morning and sprinkle a little more magic.
The first tape I bought for myself, or maybe I asked my mom for it. I don’t remember which album it was - maybe a great hits album - but I do remember listening to it a a lot. The Gambler, Lucille. That’s probably why I got so into it - a song with my full name in it! I just now put the connection together that another of his big hits is Ruby, my daughters name. So maybe this early album affected the rest of my life?
