Last thursday I went to the botanical gardens again, it's always such a joy to be there. To watch how the garden changes all year around is just fascinating to me. In the beginning of the week I saw this tree blooming at its peak, but I didn't have a camera on me (how did that happen?) except my cell phone and that didn't quite capture the tree as I saw it. So when I finally came back later in the week the tree was already a bit 'over the hill', past its peak. It was still beautiful to watch the petals falling down like snow and to smell the faint fragrance from the flowers.
