Springing Out All Over

When I landed in Sacramento last month, spring greeted me with gorgeous blooms of ornamental pear and plum trees. Their everywhereness made me eager to get out my camera, but that didn’t happen for a couple days. Though they weren’t always close to the road or in a pull-over location, I managed to snap a few.
