Wow! Beautiful...I can almost smell them!HugsSueAnn
Oh! nice... No cherry trees blooming here, but the magnolias are starting!
Oh those are gorgeous! You should read your books there on that bench.
Wonderful, wish I could walk beneath them or smell them even.
SueAnn: ah, those gentle breezes...Jazz: I heard the blooms are two weeks early, which corresponds to my dated photos from last year.Geewits: you mean the one where I fall off the bench laughing?!Nora: so do I, it would be great if you could be transported over here for a visit!
oh yes, heavenly
What a perfect gift for Earth day. I've yet to see a line of cherry blossom trees like that in person... it must be beyond stunning. Thanks for sharing this piece of heaven.
What a beautiful path for a morning stroll!
Absolutely glorious.-----------------------------------My photography is now available for purchase - visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!
They are really beautiful! Nothing like that here yet, though buds are nearly ready to burst!
Char: it is a bit heavenly that we hope isn't destoyed by any more developmentAmy: this was a gift from our twin city in Japan (I'm not sure what they got in return)Lew: it is very popular, especially at this time of yearRobin: lots of photographers take advantage of this beautyGilly: these are actually a bit early this year
Big sigh! how beautiful is THAT! Thanks for sharing your park. It made me smile.Cheers,jj
Those trees look like they are made from candy floss! How wonderful to ahve something like that near by, beautiful indeed.
I didn't think anything could rival the cherry blossoms in Washington, D.C., but I'm pretty sure that is a very close second! Beautiful photos, Sanna!
Cherry trees are blooming in Canada?I would have thought they'd be much later!...and there's that apartment building in the background!
Joanna: and such a short lived glory. you are welcome.Saj: my photos don't do it justice. I will keep trying until I get it just right.Susan: well, that is high praise, indeed! June: they peaked on May 5th last year, so we are a bit early. and where I am is still pretty far south (near Niagara Falls)
Cherry blossom. My favourite essential oil smell! And I love when the flowers shed and become carpets.
Lena: with the wind picking up today... I must head out to see. I've never smelled the essential oil.
You're going to be disappointed at how barren Ottawa still is vis a vis blossoms and flowers -- except for the tulips of course. They'll make sure there are lots of tulips
June: yes, you recognized that apartment building!XUP: tell the tulips to hold on until their big festival date!
I have one lone cherry tree in my backyard which is trying to blossom now...yours are simply beautiful...it will be fun to be there when the petals are falling like snow...
Wow.. what glorious blossoms!
What a wonderful way to start the day! Our cherry trees have all turned green and I was just missing the blossoms! You photos let me enjoy them a bit longer :)
Thanks for sharing this BEAUTY with us here ... and happy belated Earth Day to you ;-)Hugs and blessings,
Beautiful, spring has at last arrived.
Oliag: I hope your cherry tree is successful! as lovely as the blossoms are, the petals strewn on the ground have their own beauty, don't they? today is windy and rainy and it does look like it is snowing.Ladyfi: it is lovely to walk under the trees.Kaori: oh, you are so welcome. these trees came from Itabashi, Japan (I must look it up and see exactly where that is). it is our twin city.HRG: ah, I thought a flower lover such as yourself would really appreciate this. Ken: and so have the spring rains!
