Despite the thick glaze of frost on my car windows this morning, I was able to find proof that Spring finally sent the Winter packing.

Despite my pollen allergies, I ducked underneath the branches and climbed a few feet up into this tree. The light played hide and seek with the clouds which caused the creamy pink and white hues of the flowers to undulate according to the degree of direct sunlight available. Several people passed by on their morning constitutional. Some were walking their dogs. The humans had no clue that I was sitting above the ground concealed within the tree by the dense mantel of luscious flowers. But the dogs all stopped in front of the tree and swept the air with their intelligent snouts. I was relieved that they stayed on the sidewalk and did not bark. I did not want to be discovered.
