Last year when this tree blossomed in our back yard, the blossoms lasted less than a week and the leaves withered up soon after.
This year we didn’t expect anything. One day the leaves started poking out. The next week buds had formed and soon after we had blossoms all over.
The storms and wind brought down the blossoms quickly this year, but the leaves are still there!
Happy Fourth of July! I pray you have a blessed and safe celebrations.
