petals like confetti


Last year I posted about our plum tree's blossoms being one of the first thing to promise us spring.  But, one of the sweetest treasures of this tree was left out.  After a week or so of baby pink blossoms and bumble bees enjoying their newfound buffet, the tree begins dropping its petals.  You can stand under the tree when a breeze blows through and get showered in pollen and petals alike.

I think the blossoms falling like confetti is God's way of saying, 
"Hey, daughter of mine!  It's spring!  Let's celebrate!"

that last bit is so refreshing . . . the beginning of Spring always reminds me that Easter is right around the corner and I get more excited than Christmastime.

Ooo, love that. So many childhood memories of piles of petals. So sweet to see it recognized as beauty instead of a mess. Spring is the best time.
