|Maple in bloom|
I noticed just a few days ago the faint reddish glow on the trees along the highway as I drove Justin to Lords Valley. That's all you need to see to know the maples are blooming. We're not talking fancy, large, fragrant blooms like Magnolias. You can't miss a magnolia in bloom, unless you were blind, and even then, you'd probably be able to smell them. it's a nice fragrance!
But they still have a sort of beauty to them...my opinion, I suppose.
The flowers on maple trees are too subtle and too small and too insignificant for most people to care about. The thing is though, I'm not like most people, so I do care. I do like them and I do appreciate them every spring when the trees in the woods and on the hills take on that faint reddish glow.
I like maples in bloom. I'm just funny that way.
