Look at this beautiful tree in my front yard. I wanted to get a picture of it when it was all blooms and the day slipped away from me. Then, it rained for 3 days and unfortunately the rain washed away a lot of the little white flowers. It was funny because one day when it hailed I couldn't tell what was hail and what was flowers. The ground was blanketed with these precious little flowers making it look like the snow we long for. Anyhow, back to the tree, it is a little confused. It thinks that it is spring. It does this every year. On the first warm day it starts to bloom. I feel bad for this tree because it doesn't know the seasons but, I am glad for us because we get to enjoy it's beauty long before all of the other trees wake up. Maybe this tree is just a glory hound. Maybe, it just likes to be the center of attention. It is!! All of the other trees on our block are just barren. I bet my lovely tree makes all of the other trees jealous. Oh, how silly I'm being!!

Anyway, I just thought you might want a sneak peek at spring. I hope it cheers you up, it cheers me up everytime I pull into my driveway.

Have a fantastic day!

What a gorgeous tree! We've had lots of rain too and much of the snow has melted along with it. How wonderful to have your tree full of little white flowers!
