In my dream, behold a vine was before me; ...And in the vine were three branches: and it was as though it budded, and her blossoms shot forth. Genesis 40: 9-10


The Crab Apple tree
Standing behind me
Started out slow.
When God made room
For flowers to bloom
He took His chances
And made them
Part of the branches.
Only the divine
Would know
That it takes time
For dreams to grow
And become awesome
As buds begin to blossom.

Poetry by me, AJP


It took 15 years for our flowering crab apple tree to produce blossoms. Needless to say, we are thrilled to see the beauty of it in the past few years....

We are leaving on Tuesday to be away for a week visiting my mother....Most likely the blossoms will be gone by the time we return as they don't last long...

I will be off-line until the 11th of May...In the meanwhile I'll leave you with blossoms until my return...Have a great week to all and a very Happy Mother's Day in advance next Sunday for the Mom's on earth and in heaven.

Update: Nov. 21, 2016 So interesting to look back when my mother was still alive and the
plans we made to be with her seem more like a dream now...It is hard to believe she has been
gone now since October 2011 and my father since December 2003...
