Serendipity Sunday: Before & After

Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

Pictured above are the pink blossoming trees, I took a picture of on February 27th, 2021.  Here is the new version of these beautiful trees, below.  I took this picture yesterday, April 17, 2021

The deep plum color of these trees will  remain until late Autumn, when the leaves will fall and reveal the sculptural branches of the trees.  


"Risk-taking, trust, and serendipity are key ingredients of joy. Without risk, nothing new ever happens. Without trust, fear creeps in. Without serendipity, there are no surprises."

~ Rita Gelman


"The universe is always speaking to us... sending us little messages, causing coincidences and serendipities,reminding us to stop, to look around, to believe in something else, something more."

~ Nancy Thayer


"Surrender is a state of living in the flow, trusting what is, and being open to serendipity and surprises."

~ Judith Orloff


Happy Sunday Everyone!

Hello Alexandra and Ron - nature has ways of showing its changes(sometimes subtle and others quite dramatic).

Good morning, Alexandra... I totally relate to these pictures... the street that borders the entrances to my neighborhood is lined with these trees... our still have flowers blooming... but it's always breathtaking to see the trees blooming in spring and summer as they welcome us into Ardrey.

Happy Sunday to you too. We are having warm temps this weekend - low 80's and this morning our wild Cherry tree has a few pink blossoms. I'll share a photo when it gets into its full glory. The  flowering trees at lower elevations have been in bloom a few weeks, so we've been waiting. I appreciate your photos and quotes. D

Your first pink blossoms are what we are seeing now in our area but they only last a week. I like that your version with the dark leaves last throughout the season!

Hi Ron and Alexandra- I love watching mother nature unfold her colors for us in the spring. Enjoy now before she lets them rest for the winter.
