The Pretty Ugly Tree

Every year for about two weeks, our house is the prettiest on the block.  That’s due to this beautiful flowering tree.  The blooms are here for such a short time.   We are the only house on the block with a flowering tree.  The neighbors all have these huge gorgeous trees that provides lots of good shade in the summer.  At the end of the two weeks when all of the flowers are gone, this tree turns back to the ugly duckling; it’s short and not very pretty.  But every spring it’s just a joy to see it in bloom.

  1. Whooo! So purty! I really like the transformation aspect of it! Maybe as the years go on, it will get bigger and provide more shade? One can hope!
