See? Oh! No! Thus…… (as seen in Central Park this afternoon).. they are rich and beautiful this time of year! (And yeah.. when I’m not trying to be clever: ceonothus.)

And these are my new favorite spring bloom.. aren’t they sweet?

I totally feel like things on every front are looking up…

And, boy, do I love walking into the house and seeing this view of late afternoon sun pouring through the windows..
