Late Bloomers

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.
