Finally! I thought that spring would never come to Baumholder. Now that it is finally here, all the trees are blossoming and it is beautiful. After spending five days at a field exercise, Brad came home yesterday. It probably wasn’t the welcome home he had wanted. I hadn’t showered, folded laundry was spread all over the front room, and Annika had a messy accident right before he walked in the door. However, when I told him how much I had been wanting to get outside and take pictures of a tree in bloom behind our house, he stayed with the kids and did all the dishes so I could go shoot to my heart’s content. As I was coming back to the house, I almost stepped on these tiny, tiny little blue flowers. I am always amazed at the beauty, detail and perfection of some of the smallest of God’s creations.
