Herewith a brief photo essay.
We have a lovely row of trees that flower in the spring.
Just a few weeks ago, on my daily walk with the dog, I noticed one branch has severely broken--the right angle is the break. The buds were forming all over the tree, including on the broken branch.
Today, as I walked by the same tree, I noticed that the downed branch was in full bloom, as was the whole tree.
So, I take heart in this sweet message from nature--a broken branch can still bloom.
