Snuck outside to take some photos on May 1st. Our land has a plethora of “wild” flowering trees including crabapples and dogwoods. Seeds blown in from suburbia found fertile soil and have grown into a beautiful blanket of spring flowering trees. This year isn’t the most spectacular bloom, but it’s still an impressive site no less. Having all of this wild beauty makes me feel like I’ve snuck one over on the world; cheated someone out of something. Who in their right mind would willfully have sold us such a beautiful spot, and not kept it for themselves.
Their loss, my gain.
