Happy Arbor Day

Hello! Happy Arbor Day! I sure do love a day dedicated to celebrating trees. Maybe it’s just because I’m getting older, but I’ve been noticing that a lot of the photos I’m taking these days are of trees…or plants, cacti, or birds. I guess a greater appreciation for this beautiful land we’re lucky enough to inhabit comes with age. Anywho, I’ll share more photos from my California trip next week. But for now, let’s just all sit and virtually appreciate the beauty of this jacaranda tree I passed near downtown San Diego the other day.  Southern California gets not only one, but TWO blooms from the jacaranda tree every year. These beauties are currently in bloom all around LA and San Diego right now, and they sure are swoon-worthy. Wherever you are today, get outside and go give some love to your local trees.
