Break open a cherry tree Posted on May 22, 2013 by Heather Break open a cherry tree and there are no flowers, but the spring breeze brings forth myriad blossoms. -Ikkyu Sojun AdvertisementShare this:TweetEmailLike this:Like Loading... Related
Out my window I see a dusting of snow and drooping plants. Your clouds of cherry blossoms are a much more welcome, and beautiful, sight.
Out my window is a blanket of fog – subject for a sunnier day’s blog. I felt that the cheerful cherries would do better today, and it seems like they have. Snow in May – it just does not seem fair!
Wow…that almost looks fake. 🙂 The cherry trees remind me of the blooming Bradford Pear trees down here in late March.
With their thick covering of blossoms, they do look like the pears…but instead of just lining the streets, we have thousands of them 🙂 And you’re right – they almost look fake!
Those pictures almost look so unreal, they are simply beautiful!!
I don’t know what shape the blossoms will be by the time you get to TC, but I really hope you get to see them like this sometime. They are just spectacular 🙂
Thanks for the info 🙂
Your photos are lovely as always & you’re right about the welcome respite from the rain…:)
…and it’s still raining. No worries – a few fresh morels make being in the rain worth it. And when it gets to be too much, there are always sunny photos to rely upon 🙂
These are amazing. Are you under a frost warning tonight? It’s stinking cold here today. I think our low will be in the low 40’s tonight though. Hopefully no frost for you guys!
Yes, Dawn, we are under a frost advisory 😦 Or maybe even a warning – super 😦
It was in the 40s and rainy for most of the day, but then the winds cleared everything off, which looks much nicer, but is quite chilly. I even broke back out the down ski coat. Oh May – you’re either growing unwanted weeds or freezing everything off. Where’s the happy medium? We brought in our unplanted garden plants…plan to put them in the soil tomorrow, so I hope this cold night thing doesn’t last long. Stay warm!
Why thank you! They’re just about bloomed out now, but it’s quite a show when they’re all “on.”
