Thoughts... Hmm... right now, I'm looking out my window seeing snow all over the trees.
It was a black locust that I'd planted more than twenty years ago. Funny how you come up with things you want to plant as soon as you move into a new house. The second apartment Budley and I shared was a big old house on Cherokee Parkway in Louisville. It had been duplexed, and we lived in the lower level where there was a black locust growing next to the screened in porch. I thought it was one of the prettiest trees I'd ever seen. I liked the leaves as much as the blossoms, and I made a point of getting several of them when we moved to Indiana. This is a pic I stole from Google images, but you get the idea.
That same year, the locust was in full bloom--the most beautiful it had ever been.
Makes me sad. Must find a sad hunk to go with it.
Dunno how sad he is, but he doesn't look very happy.
Must have sand in his butt.
