I drove passed the Lutheran Home on Spring Road in Hickory yesterday and couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw rows of pink flower trees. I kept thinking what could be blooming at this time of the year?
I stopped by today to photograph, and sure enough they were the crab apple trees.
This is very strange to me, and I couldn’t find a definite answer as to why this is happening in a small town. I decided to call the Lutheran Home, and the operator said that this is the first year that it bloomed in the Spring and Fall. It must be the strange weather. She said the leaves started to fall, and we had a few days of warm weather, then the flowers came out. It’s so odd to see the flower trees and autumn leaves at the same time.
Lutheran Home is a nursing home, and they also offer adult daycare.
The blossoms are as pretty and healthy as the ones bloomed in the Spring.
I still can’t believe what I’m seeing. I don’t know who is confused, me or the trees?
