I ♥ Spring

May 21, 2013 Photo of the day: "I ♥ Spring!"

I know that I've posted pictures of this tree twice already this month, and if you follow my blog, you are probably getting tired of photos of flowering trees and shrubs. Yet, spring took a long time to arrive in Wisconsin this year, and these lovely blossoms are so fleeting. Only a month ago, I struggled to find one thing that was beautiful or interesting enough to photograph for my P365, and now I fear I'll miss something wonderful if I don't look closely everyday. I love our redbud tree. Just days ago its branches were laden with tiny pink blossoms, but as the blossoms start to fall, they are giving way to these lovely heart-shaped leaves. The tree was a wedding gift, a living symbol of beauty, growth, and love.
