This is the tree in our backyard. I have no idea what type of tree it is, but it isn't the prettiest in the world. In fact, most of the year it is pretty sad looking. But, the one or two weeks it blooms it is breath taking!
Usually it will bloom in time for Easter pictures of the kids in front of it, but this year's unseasonably warm weather has forced it and all the other blooms to come much earlier than they planned.
That's okay. I will enjoy the fluffy pink for as long as it lasts.
