We have a couple of particularly nice trees in the front yard here at Stately Hoge Manor, and I’ve posted pictures of them from time to time. The ornamental cherry tree is spectacular when it is blossoming. The Carroll County Times has put pictures of it on the front page twice since we’ve lived here.
There comes a day each spring when the blossoms begin to fall. Over the next couple of days, our front yard is covered with petals, something my son called “pink snow” when he was a toddler. Today’s rain started this year’s pink snow.
