<----- This is a picture of a tree that is in our front yard. It's actually kind of between the size of a large bush and a small tree, but it's a tree none-the-less. Neither Anthony or I thought much about this tree when we first moved in. It was the dead of winter, and we were more concerned about unpacking and setting up than we were about the plants in our yard.
Come early spring/April, Anthony and I were sitting on the couch looking outside our window. I made a passing comment that I thought the tree in our yard would have blooms on it. Anthony countered by arguing the opposite. "The tree looks half dead!" he argued. But I was pretty insistant that the tree would have flowers. As spring progressed, the tree did sprout tiny little purple flowers along the branches. But I still argued that the tree would have actual big flowers. Anthony did not believe me.
As you can tell by the picture, the tree now has plenty of large blooms on it! Here is a closer picture for clarification:
It actually started really blooming in late July, but I have been lazy about taking pictures and writing this blog. If you ask Anthony, he will still argue that he was right and I was wrong. I don't really see how that is possible, but you know boys.
Anyways, I thought all of you out there might enjoy this little story. Thank you for allowing me to have my little moment of declaring myself the victor :)
