While walking under this tree, I inhale deeply to take in the scent of the beautiful blossoms. Their time is so brief, that one could miss the opportunity to enjoy that lovely fragrance. Soon a brisk wind will blow, and the white petals will gather like snow in little drifts. The apples will begin to develop little by little, providing fruit for the birds and, when they fall, for the rabbits.
Then, this tree with its bountiful blooms came into view. The colour was spectacular, the sheer number of flowers, amazing, the fragrance intoxicating. Soon the lilacs will add their heady scent to the breeze. This is one of the many reasons I love nature!
