It's Cherry Blossom Time Again!

                                        


This lovely cherry tree on one of our main streets had a late start this year.

It is finally in full and glorious bloom now.

And what a sight to behold!

I always stop when passing by to savor a moment of beauty.

The pink blossoms are so delicate and dazzling. Then gone until next year, much to soon.

For now though, wow!!!!

Hey, those are a lot fancier blossoms than the ones I posted a couple of weeks ago. They almost look like a bunch of tutus, don't they?

My neighbor has a cherry tree and the blossoms are lovely but I have to admit not as beautiful as your photo!
A gorgeous picture!

I Love cherry blossoms so much. It's like the trees are putting on their party dresses. Too pretty!

Hi Lorraine, Welcome and thanks for your kind words. I'll be back over to S and B to visit again too!

Hi SandyL, They are kind a 'fancy' aren't they, I agree. Tutus, love it!

Hi Margie, These were so thick, they almost looked artificial, but in a good way LOL Thanks Margie.

Hi Teri, That's what makes me stop every time, the wow factor.

Hi Sel, Party dresses, good one. Kind of like the tutus that Sandy mentioned. Very lush blossoms indeed.

Wishing you lots of beautiful sights along the trail, G

We had a cherry tree in the park across the road from where I grew up and we were always thrilled to see the blossoms cos it meant that soon we would be able to climb it an eat al the yummy cherrys! The ones the birds didn't get that is and we always had to climb higher and higher to reach the biggest ones!

Thanks for tweaking a great childhood memory with that pic!
