Photo Post-2 : Cherry Blossoms, the beginning

Click on the picture for a detailed look at these lovely buds

After a (rather brief) winter, the beautiful cherry blossom tree in our front drive is starting to show signs of life. The first buds have begun to appear. With a few weeks, the stunning pink blossoms will show up, dazzle us for a few weeks and then fall. Green leaves will take their place over summer after which they will change color to gold and fall too.

The whole process will begin like clock-work again next spring. Simply fascinating.

You can see more pictures of the tree from bloom to bare over the last few seasons here.
