Well this is what it looks like! I took this photo at a local private school in my town last May 1st. I remember what the air felt like. Unfamiliarly balmy, palpably misty, and amazing! It was like the essence of spring was filling my lungs, especially as I took in the sight of these blooming trees. Are they cherries? Crabapples? There was no gardener nearby to ask. I’d be curious to know how old they are, too, and who tends them. Amazing! It’s hard to imagine, with over two feet of snow in my garden at the moment, that I’ll see this sight again.
