I found this hidden spot while scouting and hiking around a local park awhile back but the area was too wet during the rainy season to explore. The weather right now is perfect as the ground is dry and the air is cold and crisp enough that everything around is quiet (even though there are plenty of joggers nearby), it feels almost as if I’m in my own secret garden. I was really drawn to this place because amongst all the piles of branches and fallen leaves are these two flowering pear trees that I really love. These type of trees not only bloom beautifully around Houston during this time of winter, but it also reminds me so much of my childhood when my sister and I would ride down our old apartment lane filled with these flowering pear trees. We’d pick them from the low hanging branches and fill our baskets up with them.
