Ephemeral Flowering

Breathtaking Beauty

Ephemeral: lasting for a very short time

Plum Blossoms

Plum Blossoms

The flowering of these beautiful trees ushers in the spring. I am amazed at how these trees seem to bloom over-night, in unison. One day, they go unnoticed; the next time you look, glorious color abounds.

The flowering beauty meets my definition of ephemeral since the colorful stage is transient. I try to consciously appreciate the sight. To me, the flowers seem to disappear without warning as suddenly as they arrive.

Time is relative. While these ornamental trees blossom every year, the growing cycle lasts only about 30 years for plum trees which is fleeting in the realm of time.
