While most flowering trees blossomed two weeks late this spring,
it seems the Shire's mimosa trees, with their fern like leaves,
couldn't wait to get blooming.
At least I don't remember them blooming this early.
But here they are, pink and fuzzy, like so many marabou feathers
decorating the green trees along the off ramps and highways.
What could be better than driving past a forest of flowers
in early summer?
