What a lovely card, I am looking forward to when the trees start to bloom. We have a beautiful tree in our neighbor hood that I think it was two trees and somehow the grew together, When it blooms the top of the tree is pink like your flowers and the bottom has white flowers. It is so pretty. Have a wonderful week. Hugs, Heide
