"PINK popcorn popping on the apricot (er... plum) tree!"
The kids love it when the trees begin to blossom. I have to admit that I do to. We were driving in the car yesterday and Lizzie and Jackson both could not contain their enthusiasm every time we drove by a "popcorn tree". They would shriek, "There's another one!" about every 2 seconds. (When Jackson says, "There's another one!" it sounds like, "nuh-wun." Oh I love it!)
Then the conversation always goes something like this:
Lizzie: Mommy can we eat that popcorn?
Me: No sweetie. It just looks like popcorn, but it's really just flowers.
Lizzie: Can we eat the flowers?
Me: (chuckling inside) You can eat the flowers if you want, but they won't taste very good.
