Around here, the catalpa trees are in abundant bloom
-- actually spectacular.
Unlike the fruit trees and dogwood
which detonate color into the spring landscape,
catalpas bloom in mid-summer
-- after crocus, tulip, daffodil, and iris
have come and gone
and all the trees are so lush with green
that I suspect many people do not even notice.
It's a little sad.
It should not matter
when a tree (or person) blossoms.
Beauty is beauty, whenever and however it happens.
And appreciation is always appropriate.
So, thank you.
