Trees in Bloom at Long Hill

Trees in Bloom at Long Hill (Originally uploaded by randubnick)

Here is another photo from a recent outing at Long Hill Gardens in Beverly, MA, where there are rows of blossoming trees lining the roadway. I was so excited to see the trees in bloom, and thought, as I always do, of A. E. Housman's poem, "Loveliest of Trees", and caught myself reciting some of the lines. It is a poem about cherry trees in bloom, but it is also about life and beauty and time. (I posted the entire poem here on April 30 of 2005, but it is found in many anthologies, and it is worth having a look.)
