My husband loves this tree. Even I have to admit that it is beautiful, but just for a few days every year. The flowers last a week if we are lucky and have no rain.
And then my sidewalk is covered with these slippery, pink petals. They stick to your shoes and end up in the house. It is easy to fall on them. This is a picture of my walk taken just a few days after the tree has started to blossom. I am dreading what it will looking a few days.
