This Week Last Year: February 21, 2009

Today my Mom noted that one of our tulip trees in front of our house was already blooming, well ahead of spring. We have two tulip trees, each with distinctly different flowers. The larger tulip tree is named the Thalia Tree, and the smaller is named the Carys Tree (how appropriate). Both were planted by my parents in honor of each of our daughters--Thalia's when we moved to San Antonio, and Carys's when she was born.

Exactly a year ago, both trees were already blooming due to the mild winter and early spring weather. Although we've had a more 'wintry' winter this year, the Thalia Tree is already showing us signs of spring!

Last year we admired the beautiful pink blooms of the Thalia Tree so much that we took many photos, after returning home from a birthday party. Thalia was very proud to pose in front of "her" tree.
