May 1, 2012 – Fallen
You may have seen the nice and colorful crab apple blossom in front of my house (April 17, 2012 – (Crab) Apple Blossom) – the flower is very pretty (for about a week or two – and then this. The fallen petals stick to everything, shoes, feet, dog and guests. It is quite annoying that at one point in the past, I had a chainsaw out and made an attempt to cut the tree down. Luckily, I wasn’t good with a chainsaw. The flower and the fallen petals reminds of a promise “for better – for worse”
The picture below shows you that there are still plenty of petal to fall. You probably wonder why the photo was extremely over exposed. I had an appointment with my ophthalmologist today and my eyes were dilated. So I purposely overexpose the picture to remind me that it was how I looked at the world for several hours today. Our eyes are amazing instrument. No amount of camera lenses can duplicate what they are capable of.
