Spring in the hood

We have had signs of Spring around our neighborhood for almost a month now, but the sunshine just keeps getting nicer!

Take in some mobile scenes from the streets of Ballard, captured during my evening walks. We have a variety of trees and colors in our neighborhood, in Autumn as well as Spring. The camellia are already falling, and lots of ume & some sakura are in full bloom.

Of course, here’s a real post with my favorite blossoming trees of Spring.
