Horse chestnuts!

The buckeyes are in bloom around here. I've noticed that many of the trees that have the showiest blooms turn all shy and nondescript during high summer. One rarely notices a horse chestnut after its flowers have gone. Redbuds and dogwoods are much the same in that regard. Anyway, this particular tree stands in the corner of the last yard on our street, right by the parking lot of the park. Sassy and I pass it on our walks all the time. Enjoy.
