in bloom


I came into the office Monday morning wondering if the cherry tree would be in bloom. It wasn't, but a thunderstorm roared through later in the day and by the end of it there were pretty clearly a few blossoms out. Today it's out in full, showing off against its usual backdrop of red brick, black leaded glass panes, and grey skies. We're supposed to get temps down to 30F Saturday morning, but spring is definitely here nonetheless.

I saw forsythia and a flowering (pink) tree in New Jersey over the weekend, and near my house, the star magnolias are out. Yeah!

Your cherry tree photos are pretty "anthologic"... they take me back to previous years of blog reading. I like that, although sometimes it brings an eerie deja vu feeling ;-).
(like today, I just felt like I was floating in time, not knowing exactly when it was that I first read about "your" cherry tree. Most likely 4-5 years ago...

Lilian, it's that way for me, too, which is why I keep doing it even though this blog is close to dormant otherwise...
