The weather this week has produced some very beautiful spring color that I thought I would share. The very warm weather earlier in the week and then rain today means that more is yet to come. The neighborhood gets even more beautiful than usual this time of year with the brilliant colors. See if you don’t agree!
The lawns were being mowed afterwards some were being fed (catching the weather just right before the rains) and I caught one of our maintenance crew in action. Jose is one of nine workers that spend their time keeping this neighborhood beautiful.
Here are some additional shots around the neighborhood.
Enjoy the color this week in the neighborhood.
