Birthday Flowers

For my daughter, who has just turned 10, flowers from her father.


These perfectly pink petals brought a smile to her face and remain in front of her spot at the table for her to enjoy.



Crab Apple


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.
