Some of you have suggested that fighting the fire together (till 1 a.m.) brought our little community together. But as LeRon and I have thought about it, we realized that the people who came to the two community get-togethers sponsored by our landlord (and not everybody did) were actually the ones who rolled out of bed to help. There were a lot that didn't. So having those get-togethers helped us get to know each other and helped us to feel a sense of community and when that community was threatened, they pitched in to help. And then by helping together, we bonded further. I can't say enough good about the people who live around us. I feel safe knowing that they are there.

|Blossoms so beautiful against the sky.|
|Tried and tried to take good pictures of the blossoms but the breeze kept moving them around. Be sure to click on the pictures to enlarge them.|
|The little balls of brilliant red are so beautiful.|
|The blossoms fall to the ground making little pinging sounds. Like huge raindrops falling.|
