Many Pink Flowers

pink flower tree.blo

For a few days each year, this tree is breathtakingly beautiful with its blossoms at their fullest. Then the street is littered with sad-looking, trumpet-shaped flowers, some of which have already made the journey.

Once the flowers are gone, huge leaves start to grow – seemingly overnight. With the first chilly weather in the Fall, the leaves hit the street, and the raking begins. But right now I marvel at how simply gorgeous the tree is right at this moment.

The tree has a baby sibling in the back and to the right, but the flowers are much slower in coming out. I don’t know what the difference is – they seem to get about the same amount of light.

There was quite a breeze during this portrait-taking ceremony, so the flowers aren’t as sharp as they could be, but nevertheless, they are still beautiful.

      I can see it from my window, so I don’t have to rake said leaves, I can just enjoy the show. BUT – last fall there were 25 bags of leaves from my own trees to deal with!

      Most trees seem to get leaves first, but there are two or three different ones here that get a profusion of flowers which last such a short time, and then fall off, replaced by leaves. Some trees’ leaves are green, and others’ come in a dark wine color.

    It is really beautiful at this moment. I have a crape myrtle in front of my house that looks gorgeous when it blooms, but in no time at all it is dropping those little petals and some kind of hard seeds, and is a total mess to clean up! I’d like to take it out but don’t know what I’d put in its place.

    Just glorious! We were awed by pink and white flowering trees when we went for a drive today. The white flowering trees were beautiful, but the pink ones really captured my attention.

    Yours looks prettier than any that we saw!
