On the Streets Where I Live

February 28, 2010

Flowering plum and cherry trees line many Seattle residential streets, providing a beautiful colonnade on my walks and drives.  The full-blossomed trees remind me of the color of the black raspberry ice cream cones we would buy at the dairy bar in my hometown.

Down the street near my home

“To find the universal elements enough; to find the air and the water exhilarating; to be refreshed by a morning walk or an evening saunter; to be thrilled by the stars at night; to be elated over a bird’s nest or a wildflower in spring – these are some of the rewards of the simple life.”
      — John Burroughs
