My favorite time of year...
... is when the crab apple tree & Korean Spice Viburnums are both in bloom creating a white, pink, fragrant archway out my front door.
I probably post this photo every year, but that's because every year I am amazed by it's beauty. The first year we lived in this house and springtime came, I walked out the front door and halted in my tracks, hand to heart; I had never seen anything so lovely. And it was all mine. Never mind that I didn't plant any of this (I did add the bench at the end of the walk, however), it was still mine and standing under that crabapple all in bloom makes me feel like Alice in Wonderland, waiting for a little white rabbit to come peeking out from beneath it's trunk (no photo I've taken under can do justice). It's my little outdoor oasis.
