30×30 Challenge: Day 6

Up early for my slightly longer walk/run warmup for yoga on the deck. I remembered to bring my phone (i.e. portable camera) this time, which was great because everything seems to be in bloom right now! There were these gorgeous blossoms (and if you can identify them, please comment below), which I know are edible fruit that the neighbour once shared with my boys and I several years ago but my memory fails me as to what exactly it was…

They are different from the cherry blossoms I’m familiar with as the branches all hang down like a weeping willow. I’ll try to find out a bit more about them and report back.

After breakfast my eldest and I walked to the library. I took the good camera this time and I have some photos to post, but will likely post them at a later date as there are too many to deal with in my tired state. I did some computer catching up on the front porch (starlings, robins, and sparrows visited), and  took my eldest to a late afternoon class and met his classmate’s mom and hung out in the nearby playground while our youngest kids played in the sun. Later, I read another chapter to my son on the front porch while the sun sank.

I certainly feel caught up on my vitamin D now!
