Isn’t this lovely? I took this photo a few weeks ago and completely AND totally forgot about it. My camera died a few weeks ago and David gave me his little digital camera to play with and that’s when I captured this gem.
This beautiful tree is in front of our beach cottage and it blooms in pink profusion each Spring. Since it was planted years before we ever moved here I unfortunately have absolutely no idea what it is. The ruffly pink petals have no fragrance and don’t last at all when brought into the house.
What I do know is that it looks like pink snowflakes blowing in the breeze when these delicate blooms decide it’s time to depart. I also know that I look forward to this little bit of beauty each year…it’s the simple things in life, ya know?
