It’s that time of year. The flowering trees have started to bloom. It usually begins with Wild Cherry and Plumb. Then come the Redbuds and Magnolias. Then Dogwoods, Catalpas, Buckeyes, and Mimosas.
There are a lot of trees in my area with small, white flowers. Probably too many to know all of them. But the other day, when I was out on the trail, I spied this little beauty laying in the grass. It only took a second to realize that it wasn’t a ground flower. There was an entire blanket of these blooms lying under a tree. The Hawthorn Tree.
This was the first time I took a close look at this particular blossom. And it was quite a gift for the day 🙂
The center sort of looks like a creature with unfolding tentacles. Perhaps a Sea Anemone. Take in its beauty and use your imagination. What do you see?
