This is such a lovely picture with the trees in bloom and then the young man standing there looking at them. Both have some growing to do and I so love your statement about Childhood being a short season. You set the mood, the theme, the truth of it all with this beautiful picture. Excellent work in looks and work Christine. A favorite for me. #11671404
