I've been super crazy busy lately, working on a new plugin and visiting with an old friend in town, which explains no posts in the last week despite having such a backlog of things to write about. But I did get out today a bit with my friend to enjoy some early cherry blossoms.

This photo is all hazy because it was shot through several branches worth of blossoms much nearer to the lens than the one the focus is on. It's not a photo with much technical quality, but I like the vibe.

Did you mean “Cheery” or “Cherry” blossoms in title?

Oops, either would have been better than what I had. Fixed. Thanks. —Jeffy

I have the feeling that it could be Jeffrey and Jeffrey Jr. in the background 🙂

Please mention what part of the world you're writing from, if you don't mind. It's always interesting to see where people are visiting from.
