Bloom . . . 176/365

For the last two weeks I've stalked this tree in my neighbors yard and it finally bloomed. Just 3 days ago I took a picture of it and there were barely blooms there - today it's in full bloom.
It was very windy therefore very hard to get a good picture of the blooms but they are gorgeous. Very large, silky looking and very fragrant. Just beautiful. The problem is that they don't last very long. Just a couple of days and they'll be falling petals to be replaced by the leaves that the tree will sport all summer long.
