If you've never been thrilled to the very edges of your soul by a flower in spring bloom, maybe your soul has never been in bloom. ~Audra Foveo

OMG'osh... so when we moved here, there was this tree in the backyard. Right by our bedroom window. Hubby HATED it because it was bald and ugly. He actually wanted to chop it down. I said, "No... leave it." I mean, there's nothing but ROCKS back there ya know? At least a tree will have leaves and give some green... That was in Oct/Nov last year. So yesterday I go and throw the trash (Oh yeah, my hubby's been gone for 3 weeks on military training and comes back Saturday but I've been having to do this job. Throwing the TRASH! haha) So I go throw the trash which was a pain in the butt. I was so FRUSTRATED! When I was done, as I'm walking back towards the house, I caught some pretty color out of the corner of my eye and and I look over and OMG! The tree was blooming! And had pretty pink flowers on it! It made my day! I got so happy in a snap of a finger. Seriously. If you had seen me, you'd seen this cheesy smile on my face going back in the house. I practically skipped my way in. I HAD to take a picture of them so I did that today. *sigh* I feel so happy looking at them. Spring is definitely in the air!
