April showers may bring May flowers, but yesterday's downpour brought some of April's flowers down.
Today Rhododenron flowers could be found underfoot, carpeting the ground and pavement.
Earlier this week, I watched as cherry tree blossoms were lifted off branches by the spring breeze. They drifted down to the ground, settling there for a moment almost like perfect snowflakes.
Upside down, if you asked me, their sepals were the stars of the show.

I felt like I was bumping into some old friends on a walk through Hofstra's grounds this week when I spotted Turkestanica tulips en masse bordering a sculpture and then tucked into all kinds of little spots as well.
Is this sweet species tulip I adore getting a little trendy these days or is someone at Hofstra also enamored by it? Either way is just fine by me.

Call me fickle I guess? I seemed to have developed yet another mad crush on an orange tulip I just met this morning.
