Petal covered paths...

petals

It seems all of Los Angeles is in bloom this week...

flowering trees

and pink velvet...

flowering trees

Trees that refuse to be upstaged...

flowering trees

By any other flower. Even if their beauty is short lived...

If the wind wasn't blowing so hard, LA is also quite fragrant to match those blooms.

Great pics btw ...

Oh these are exactly my sort of photographs. I know you do it for all of us, but I take it as a gift. Mille grazie. Love the atmospheric color cast...we have similar flowering trees on "our" coasts...but look so different.


...on more prosaic note, trying to figure out how delayed the feeds are the last two days. Well, whatever time it is where you are (it should be 5:52PM!), hope you're well. ciao xo svs

May all your paths be strewn with flowers, since you so unselfishingly spread such beauty before us all.
