Theme Day: Flowering Trees Laugh


Laughter is the theme this month for City Daily Photo Bloggers. As I walk the streets of my neighborhood and look in my own backyard, I see everything in bloom. I cannot help but think of a previous post, Earth Laughs in Flowers, based on a poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson. Some of the photos in that post were taken  near where I took this photo last week. As I saw this tree I could not help but think it was laughing in flowers.

The tree appears to be partying with its neighbors,  the yellow flowers which have decided to climb it and the wisteria growing on the fence behind. I love the way the wisteria looks hanging from the fence. I may just get some for myself to hang among my climbing roses.

How do you think it would look next to my Cecile Brunners on my back fence?

Crape Myrtle trees also seem to be laughing when in bloom. You can't help but notice their mirth. I found this one on Main Street in Templeton.

When I see the blooming trees laughing, I can't help but laugh along with them as I enjoy their beauty. How about you?
