The Early Bloomer

This is what every tree looks like right now – skeletal, dispiriting, mournful.

So I couldn’t believe that right outside our apartment, stood what appeared to be a cherry blossom tree in full bloom. What month is it again? It appears my wish for an early Spring has somehow been granted.

But as I walked around today, there were no other signs of color or life, just the usual somber bleakness. I’d like to think this special tree was wondrously placed right outside our windows just for us. I’ve always been a late bloomer, so this is especially amusing.
