First come the flowers, then Bill and Ann

The earliest flowering crab we know of is blooming again across the way at Bill and Ann's house. And as usual, Bill and Ann aren't here yet to enjoy the show. They're still wintering in Florida and won't be here to see their front yard in bloom. If past is prologue, the pink display will be long gone by the time our neighbors get here. Legend has it that dear friends in Minnesota planted the tree there to try and entice the snowbirds to come back home early. So far it hasn't worked. In the meantime, we always enjoy this harbinger of spring. Our flowering crab won't be putting out for a month yet.
