I'm sure many of you just looked at this picture and sneezed. Despite my own allergies, I love flowering trees. They are a very visual signal that Spring has come and they are also just gorgeous! Trees are many colors: green, yellow, red, etc; but flowering trees are the rare and delicate pinks and whites that our minds really crave when Spring is in the air.
Flowering trees are rare and only last for a few weeks. Dogwoods may bloom for a little longer than a few weeks but the cherry blossoms and Bartlett pears are only around for a little while. So get out there, appreciate them while they are out, and love that Spring!
