Photo Reflection of the Day #104: Falling Over With Spring

What Is It

A small tree that is starting to bloom with flowers.

Why It's Today's Pick

I pass this tree almost every day going into work.  It's small--maybe 5 feet tall with hunched over branches that reach out toward the ground instead of the sky.  It reminds me in part of a willow tree but also as someone who walks about with slumped shoulders as if gravity had a stronger effect on them than everyone else--a friend of mine says that's what depression can often feel like.  I've watched the tree slowly accumulate green the last few days but was amazed by the abundance of flowers blooming and visible pedals when I walked by it today.  With those slowly opening, the tree now looks like a waterfall of flowers, rather than a sad slumping tree.
