you know when you are aware that you are going about with your eyes closed?

well, that was me

totally aware that i was walking and driving around with closed eyes because i was so tired of seeing nothing but brown

then, last week as i was driving Lily home on a different route, i spotted it

a small tree in full bloom

i couldn’t believe my eyes and tried hard to keep them on the road but, yup, the tree was filled with small pink flowers

the next day, with my camera in tow, i took a nice walk in the sunshine up to that pink tree

funnily enough it wasn’t too far from our home

and there it was again

all pink

and my eyes quickly opened up

it was like they got smacked right in the eyeballs with some color and finally woke up

because you know what?

spring is here

i know it’s early to say that but she is here and i am so happy to see her and all her colors

joining Annie with how does your garden grow?

ps- if you follow me on instagram, you probably guessed it was going to be an explosion of pink on here today
