Day 123

Post number 3 for today!

This was my favorite photo I took this morning. I'm not even sure what kind of tree it is. Do you know? I will probably figure it out in a couple weeks. I just love the look of it in the spring! They resemble little pink and purple nerds candy on their branches.

I tried to take a picture of one of these but mine didn't turn out half as nice as yours. I laughed out loud when I read your description and Tracy's label of a Nerds tree; I'll always think of that when I see them now.
