Perfect Timing

We have four more days of rain in the forecast starting tomorrow, but today, for a few hours, the sun came out. And just at the same time, the crabapple burst into flower (was it holding off?)

During this week in 1851, Thoreau wrote: "If you have an inclination to travel, take the ether. You go beyond the furthest star." The same might be said of putting your head in the midst of a flowering crabapple and breathing in deeply. The aroma is exotic and delicious. I felt transported to someplace far beyond my back yard.
