Cherry tree in our backyard

Cherry tree in our backyard

It’s Sunday evening. Easter Sunday. The final day of the Masters. We had a dozen people at the house this afternoon for dinner. Had the weather cooperated, we would have sat outside, but it rained heavily through the afternoon, so we sat inside, which meant there was no attraction competing with the golf. And so I was able to watch the Masters final round more or less continuously. This would have been a good thing if it weren’t so depressing in the end. I didn’t really think Kenny Perry would win, but there he was, two up with two holes to go, and I allowed myself to believe. Had Cabrera finished with two birdies and then another birdie in the playoff to win, that would have been special. But to see Kenny bogey the last two holes instead and then stumble on the second playoff hole was painful. Instead of spending the evening watching the Golf Channel analysis and the press interviews, as I normally would after a major, I just walked away, had dessert, and haven’t looked back.

The rain stopped a while ago. The sun came out, though now it’s setting. Our cherry tree is at its peak. The magnolia is just about there. Flowers are blooming. And so, despite the fading light, I took some photos. An example is above, with three more below.
