My Heart Tree

It rained, and rained, all of March and April around here. (that's what it felt like to me, the person who grew up in a desert and lives in California)  It rained so much that you could literally see the plants growing.  I do not enjoy the rain, but it has left everything impossibly lush and green and spring couldn't be lovelier.  My favorite spring sight is the tree in my backyard that for a few weeks every year is covered in red hearts.  


  1. Your tree is so beautiful. Red hearts! I envy all of the rain you are getting.

  2. HELP - what is the name of this tree. We have one around the corner and no matter how I search I can only find photos of the leaves but the name of the tree.
