Japanese Cherry Blossom

AA Pic of the Week 125 w

You know that spring is getting a firm grip on nature when the Japanese Cherry Blossom trees in our street look like this.

Japanese Cherry Blossom

My study is on the first floor, so I have these wonderful colours outside my windows at eye level, and late in the afternoon the sun shines through the pink foliage, almost setting it alight. Magical!

As dry as we are, wonder if anything will bloom. Suppose to be in the 80's this weekend, but we need rain or snow.

Pretty Photo!
