The skies are cloud-free blue and hackberry trees are budding all over in the spring-like weather in Sacramento. Fortunately, the forecast is for a period of rain to start in a few days–we need the winter wetness here in California.

The hackberry is used to make cheap furniture and firewood, according to tree experts. I like its shape and how it provides shade in the hot summers. And, the one in this photo, is in our front yard, so long may it live.
