Fruit tree in bloom

No need to explain, right? What could be more beautiful than a fruit tree in bloom on a perfect spring day? Now all we need to do is make it through the next few months. Good luck!!

even though a few weeks ago, we had one of the coldest days ever on record. So something's coming, but I'm not sure if it's spring.
