Foxglove Moments

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The flowering plum literally exploded into bloom.

On Tuesday, it was a mass of deep dark crimson buds.

On Wednesday, it was thickly bedecked in bright pink blossoms,
much like I imagine Annie Dillard's "tree of lights" in Pilgrim at Tinker Creek.

A quite spectacular transformation to witness.

And grateful that I did.
