Cherry Blossoms

Cherry Blossoms

For a few days every spring, our house is at the center of a Venn Diagram of daffodils, hyacinths, crocus, a few early tulips, and our beautiful little weeping cherry–floral fireworks exploding in our yard. The cherry blossoms are especially spectacular, although the shortest-lived.

Early spring winds quickly tease the petals from the branches until the yard around the tree looks snow-covered. I wish I knew some way to keep the blossoms on the tree just a bit longer but perhaps we find them so beautiful because they are so ephemeral.
