rare spring

There is something happening in my front yard that I just have to share with you!
We have a weeping cherry tree that is getting ready to simply explode with bazillions of flowers. This morning when I left the house, it looked like this:

Just try to count how many flower buds there are in this picture:

Then try to imagine how many there are on the whole little tree!

I'll take more pictures in the coming days as the flowers open. Also it is a rare spring that the flowers below it bloom at the same time!
The wisteria on the side of the house is ready to open, too, so if you are in my neighborhood, come by and take a peek. Our house is very humble, but the flowers and trees are something to behold.

Beautiful! I miss walking the dog by your house everyday. I always enjoyed looking at your flowers.

Funny story. I bought one of these trees for my Mom when I was 18 (ack!). For some reason it was permanently stunted and every year she says "My tree is blooming." and there would be about 5 flowers on it. If a bird lands on it the tree sways. Cracks us up every time.

Your tree is beautiful!!!

That tree is really going to explode. I wouldn't be surprised if it made a noise.

OH! That tree, and your garden underneath, is beautiful!
