The blooms are so light and airy.  They almost look like little cotton balls when you are standing at a distance.  Up close, they are so dainty and delicate.

And this is just the beginning.  This tree is gorgeous all year round.  In the summer it turns dark green and purple.  Then in the fall, it will be orange, pink, and yellow.

Summer and gardening makes me serene.

The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul. (Alfred Austin)
