I have to admit that I have been a bit obsessed with small blooms lately. Grape hyacinths and crocus have given me reason to look down and to look closely. Weeding has given me even more reason to take a closer look at the ground. Kneeling in the flower beds have become almost an every day chore for me right now.
So completely immersed in the small world of miniature blooms in the garden, I didn't see the big picture. In fact, I didn't notice the crab apples were blooming until I was inside! It was there, standing up, looking out, that I finally looked at the garden - instead of looking at the ground. And there they were - beautiful crab apple blooms.
How could I not have noticed before? Time to take a look at the garden as a whole instead of inch by inch! Time to get off my knees and look up!
