Since I walk a great deal in my neighborhood I get to know the plants pretty well. I know where I’ll see iris pop up. I know where the magnolia with the yellow blossoms is located. I know a favorite dahlia spot. And I know knew where to find a most amazing blossoming tree. (I believe it was a crabapple.)
Alas, the house was sold, and the buyers knocked the entire thing down, destroying all the plant life with it. This tree is no more. I will miss it.
