I love this tree, particularly because it is on the most ordinary of ordinary streets, tucked in the corner of a little parking lot, between the train tracks and a nondescript brick building.
...I hardly noticed it all, and then one spring, it burst into pink cotton candy bloom and took my breath away!!
Now that I'm hip to the exquisite beauty it keeps under wraps most of the year, I laugh when blowing by it on my beach cruiser (daily)...because nature is just fabulously delightful and endlessly surprising like that!!
...I'm off to catch a sunset to start the weekend out right=)
