Blossom Parade

Cherry blossoms are fading fast, but apple trees are in lovely bloom, and lilacs should be fully open by the end of this coming weekend, thanks to days of sunshine. I look at these branches and speculate: could I climb this tree? How would it feel up there? What would the view be like?

I told Joe that I could climb our maple tree in the back yard and cut off dead limbs. Our maple is a wonderful tree just waiting to be climbed - and I would have tried to climb it already except I need a ladder to get to the lowest branch.

Cherry blossoms, then apple a week later, then lilac another week later. Worry now is that frost damaged many tender cherry buds. Time will tell.

I tried a friend's daughter's jungle gym years ago and was shocked to discover I wasn't ten years old any more.
