I just wanted to see them all together in one place.
And now I have.
Only the apple blossom and Redbud are from my yard.
I made my niece and my daughter come stare at them all in one place like this. It is my collection, I said, and I’m the curate.
Then I put all the blossoms in a bunch of wee Cracker Barrel syrup and wee-er candy flavoring jars and left them on my counter.
Then a gust of wind blew in through the open window next to them and the jars all fell over and it was a disaster.
That’s the story, the amazing story.
