be still...

always too much to do and never enough time in the day. i paused in my busyness today as i happened to come across this tree.  it was absolutely beautiful and it's funny how i have never noticed this tree in the past two spring seasons that i have been working around here.  
i fell in love with the blooms that i had to "be still" and admire the beauty of it.  as i layed on the bench i looked up and this was the view.
here is a close up of the flowers...

i have no idea what the name of tree is.  maybe it's one of those trees only found in the south. i don't recall  i've ever seen this type of tree in california.  it's so loveLee and if anyone knows the name of it please let me know.  i would so appreciate it.   i hope you had a moment to "be still" today. (more "be still" moments here....)
