JSP Visual Week In Review ~ 04.10.21
Ok, here we go!
The Japanese cherry trees around our area are bubblegum pink now.
The pear tree are awash in their white flowering buds…which fall like snow when my boys hit a baseball through them.
My favorite trails in Clayton Park are starting to show more and more green.
The days are still starting off chilly, and only getting into the mid-60s during the day, so still not really as warm as I’d like, but we’re getting.
And, now that baseball season is underway, I came up with a new personal project.
More to come on that!
