We have 3 white trees and 4 pink ones in our yard, and our neighbor has 3 pink ones too of a little different variety.
I think my favorite part is the buds that promise so much and then deliver!
Here is a close-up of one of the larger bloom varieties. Isn't God's palette amazing?
This is one way I brought the loveliness indoors. This cute little dutch boy and girl were given to me by an aunt of my Moms, when I was just a girl. She lived in Victoria, British Columbia...and I still remember how charmed I was by the gift. I love the way he is just peeping out from among the blooms. Hooray for Spring...and now summer.
