It's a beautiful time of year. I don't know if I've ever seen the tree you're describing. I'll have to look up a photo of them in bloom though. There's something about a big ball of flowers up in the air that's pretty awe inspiring. I've spent a share of time in an apple orchard and around April they erupt into delicate white petals. I could smell them while I read your poem. Great poem as always and very nice use of image and rhyme
