One of the most pleasant surprises about this townhouse was that we discovered, a few months after moving in, that the trees in between the houses are flowering plums. It’s really beatiful for a week or so every year; like having our own cherry blossom festival.

I was hoping to share some pictures with my new camera, but this year has been a bit of a downer. I’m not sure exactly what the cause is, but it probably has something to do with the weather – two weeks ago, we had record-setting highs (the paper said mid seventies, but I think it hit eighty one day), last week was kind of chilly, and this week had quite a bit of rain. So the trees probably didn’t quite know what to think; two of them bloomed a week and a half ago, and the rest have finally decided to send out some number of blossoms, but they’re not putting much conviction behind it.
