The Ephemeral Beauty of Spring

Our nanking cherries are in bloom.





Pretty red tulip.



Now available in yellow.



They are with us only a few days of the year, but their beauty lasts in our hearts.

Thanks, Reb. I was very excited when I saw the big round blossom.
I'm glad it turned out. It gave me a chance to play with the macro setting.
