Ode to a Cherry blossom tree

So, if you live in Asheville you know that the weather here is WACKY!!  As in...snow flurries in April!  It frustrates me how it always seems to frost or almost frost after my trees and bushes are starting to bud.  Well, I am prepared this year, my friends!  I have covered up my azalea bushes (see below) and even my day lilies get their own pillow cases (heehee).  How lovely my yard looks now.  Haha.  

Now, my BEAUTIFUL cherry blossom tree(above on right) that has only been blooming for a whopping weekend may not make it tonight.  (The weather is still "up in the air"-pardon the unintentional pun there.)  Here's to hoping...but let's be realistic.  Her blossoms may surely die in the cold night.  So, I went outside and spent some time with her on this nasty, cold, wet day to make sure she knows she is loved.  I think she knows it now...
