A Carpet of Flowers

Outside our house we have a gorgeous tree covered in a multitude of pink blossoms. We had a bit of a wind recently, which dislodged several blossom petals, who drifted down to our front walk. When I opened the door, it was as if our whole, tiny front yard had been covered in a pink carpet.
Every once in a while I look out the window and see petals falling. It's snowing! I think.
On a different note, I would like to broadcast the fact that I am working on a novel about my how many greats grandfather, Jose Pimentel. Any information about him, his wife Rosa Freitas, or any of their siblings, parents, friends, etc, would be appreciated.
Before I post this I would like to apologize for my absence from this blog. I am afraid I don't have much to offer, but I'll try to write more often from now on.

Lucy! I like the idea of you working on the history of your family, the Pimentels. I just decided that I like to say your last name - it has a nice ring to it. Anyway, I had a similar project before, but on the Byun family in general, and there was a whole website dedicated to it. Yeah, I feel famous now. :P

It's fun though! <-- This should have been the main purpose of this comment.
