in bloom!

It starts off as hushed as red-orange can be...


I see them here and there as I make my way through town... admiring the blooms surrounded by feathery green brush....

And before long, the buds have exploded and the trees are afire. Everywhere. Dancing and swaying in the wind, showing off their red finery.  I can't help but smile... and let the laughter come along, too.


Earth laughs in flowers.

I love them so much. Surely they would throw my allergies into a tailspin….but just so pretty!!

What type of tree is that? It's gorgeous. I love that quote. Yes, flowers equal laughter in nature.
