It is "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White" time
Some mornings still show frost on the roof tops, and cold enough to require sweaters. But walks through neighborhood streets and forest preserves show clear signs that Spring is not far. Sunny days, blue skies and blossoms everywhere. How lucky we are to live in the San Francisco Bay area.
Most of the photographs were taken at Parrott Drive and Tournament Drive in San Mateo.

"And do not change. Do not divert your love from visible things. But go on loving what is good, simple and ordinary: animals and things and flowers, and keep the balance true."
-- Rainer Maria Rilke
