Spring Flowers can be Fleeting

Weeping cherry tree flowers early,
but the blooms are not long-lived (for me).

While I was cleaning out weeds from under this tree,
it started to snow flower petals, as my head bumped the trunk.

Do I dare remove the deer fence,
since those animals usually prune lower on plants?

This shrub always seem to bloom when it is raining.
Water is deadly to the appearance of these fragile blossoms.
Talk about beauty being short, but sweet!
