Springtime in Suburbia

I have owned three homes in my lifetime and each yard has boasted a weeping cherry tree. It is an ornamental tree great for landscaping because of its slow growth. Its bloom reminds me of billowy pink cotton candy. A full bloom relies on dry weather and a lack of wind to release its beauty. The bloom only lasts a few weeks but it is a heavenly scene in suburbia. I took this picture about a week before the recent rain grounded the cherry blossom leaves. Every year it is a crapshoot whether April showers will bring these May flowers.

THE DRIVEWAY OF MY WORKPLACE IS LINED WITH CHERRY TREES. I COULD SEE THEM FROM MY DESK AND ENJOYED THE BEAUTY OF THEM. ALONG CAME THE WIND AND BLEW THE BLOSSOMS ALL OVER THE GROUND. NOW IT LOOKS LIKE PINK SNOW. EMILY

That is a beautiful picture. Now I know why the Japanese have a Cherry Blossom Festival every year.

Elijah,
I will. If there is someone in particular you would like me to say hello to, drop me a line because NJ is the most densely populated state. Thanks for visiting.

Jessika,
Trees are like good relationships. A solid foundation stirs the bloom.
