From my comfy seat on the patio, this is what I see:
I love this tree! Sometimes Walker and I eat breakfast on the patio. When the breeze stirs the blossoms, petals fall like fragrant pink snow. The blossoms only last about two weeks, so I spend as much time on the patio as I can. Last summer we had three different tree services come out to give estimates on trimming our overgrown trees, and they all agreed that this one should come down. It's at the end of it's life cycle. I won't take it out, though. I'll let this grand lady welcome spring for as long as she can.
