One more blooming picture


Cherry blossoms are not that common in Phoenix so when I spotted this tree bursting with color I had to drive around the block to go back for a photo.

Oh, cherry blossom! That was my favourite thing about spring in US.

Now that makes me feel MUCH better. Spring...well yes it's finally here or so I thought until this morning when it's cold and grey again. Your photo is lovely.

Spring is always so welcomed by people in cold climates. These are lovely blooms!

That's gorgeous spring arriving.

They are starting to bloom here, too. I love February in the Western states! Gorgeous capture.

JM said...

Trees around here are blooming too, although I can not tell the difference between them... they all look alike now! :-)

Thank you for the series of flower photos. The blooming season is a ways off yet for us -- I'll have to get my "flower fix" at the Flower and Garden Show next week at Navy Pier. ;)

Oh wow it is so lovley to see these again. We have lots of these trees in our area and when they're green you can drive by and hardly notice them. Springtime however totally transforms them!

Actually, that is a flowering plum. I planted one for my mom years ago, the tree stays a plum-red in the leaves instead of green
