Against a Blue Sky

tropical flower
Bird of Paradise flower (Strelitzia)

The month of April seemed to fly by. Temperatures were cooler than usual but trees and flowers burst into bloom and it was beautiful!

The flower above is the state flower of California. I took that photo while we were in California in March. The picture of the moon and the willow tree was recent though: just yesterday evening.

Enjoy the month of May!
