After endless bouts with snow, sleet, ice and frigid unpleasantness the return of real-thing-spring is beyond welcome. Behind our house are twenty plus acres of  forested land that have been able to remain undeveloped because they sit atop an aquifer owned by the town.  The consequence is that we get to enjoy trees in their seasonal splendor both leafy and skeletal without another house in view.  Just now, they're leafing out, and a few entertain flowers that precede their greening.  This past Sunday, April 24th, I walked back there with the P67 and made the photograph below.  It's minimal as flowering trees go, but it's actually there, and I didn't have to trespass on anyone's land to make the image.  Eventually, we will move to north Florida, and I will deeply miss this landscape while I learn to love another.  This, and many other of my 'graphs will sustain the memories.

Thanks, Flavia. The move won't be for a few years, but we'll start saving up luck, so thanks for that too!
