Spring blossoms.

Spring is here.  Officially.  And how do I know?  Our peach tree is full of blossoms. The day I wake up, open the blinds, and see blossoms on the peach tree is the day I consider the first day of spring.  I'm always amazed at how fast the tree fills with the beautiful pink blossoms, each a promise of a sweet, juicy fruit.  The blossoms appear long before the green leaves start appearing, and so the branches are bare but for the bursts of color that paint the starkness with pink.
