2019—Spring Blossoms

Spring is just around the corner and spring blooms come early in Northern California. The only flowering tree in my yard is a volunteer that grew from the roots of my neighbor’s Bradford Pear.  He removed that tree years ago and I didn’t notice the volunteer at the fenceline until the spring blooms appeared in the midst of the evergreen Xylosma.  The flowers add a welcome cheeriness to the yard in the last days of winter with its gloomy gray skies and rain.
