Spring here really is lovely. The trees around here have been bursting with flowers for the past 2 weeks. Leora will randomly start belting out the Popcorn song.
Some of the "popcorn" trees have started shedding their tiny flowers. The petals look a lot like bits of paper. On our way to pick Gregory and Charla up from school, Leora noticed the petals and exclaimed, "Oh no! Someone left lots of trash on the ground!"
I laughed and assured her there wasn't any trash. "Those are petals, honey."
She balked at me and insisted, "Those aren't PUDDLES! They're trash!"
I grabbed a twig from a nearby tree and showed her how the flowers fell apart and I think she finally believed me.
