Flowers, Found

I had no idea this tree existed in my backyard.

It is full of these gorgeous flowers. They look like little wedding crowns propped up by the branches they grow on.

I don’t know what kind of tree it is, only that I am happy to have found it, and happier yet that I’ve found it in my own yard.

For years, I would drive by houses with these lush pink flowering trees in spring. I was never sure exactly what kind of tree they were, only that I wanted one.

Two years ago, we bought this house in July. It wasn’t until the following spring that I realized I finally had a tree like that.

This year, it is resplendent.
