(Does anybody else see a strange looking green butterfly?) ;)
The buds began to blossom and popped out almost all at once. We had lots of wind and rain for a few days so it was hard to photograph them and they are beginning to turn brown on some edges and will soon be gone. I wasn't pleased with the photos I had taken so I've added a texture to this one to give it a much softer 'artsy' look.
