A walk up to Mount Bonnell in February provided my first shock at the sight of flowers in bloom.
Growing up I always loved seeing the apple and cherry blossoms coming out every spring. We don't really have cherry blossoms here in many places, but we do have those Texas Mountain Laurels and Texas Redbuds and peach blossoms in bloom.
These trees are so beautiful they break my heart. They don't last long and I try so hard to soak them up as much as I can.
Right now that means taking walks around our little paths two or three times a day. Rain today threatens to break my month long habit.
