Flowering Cherry


We have three of these trees in our front courtyard. Every year at this time we get to watch as these crimson blossoms open up and change first to pink and then white.  The whole event takes a about a week or so.  The temperature Wednesday was in the low 70's so these little beauties really popped out. It was rainy and overcast when I took these images yesterday afternoon. They're not as bright as I'd like. Stay tuned for more of their progression.

    I really like the colors in your photos - the bright pink with green. Very nice!

    edited to add: the password to post was "bless". I thought you'd like that. :)

  8. Great colour, we just don't have any of this yet Mike. The cold weather must have put our spring back a few weeks.

  9. Roy - our weather has turned colder the last couple of days with plenty of rain. It's kind of slowed the progress of these blossoms. Thank you!
