Wild Cherry Blossom

I am so grateful for my flower scouts who contact me to tell me about special flowers I might have missed. This pretty bunch of wild cherry blossoms on a tiny sapling is on a walk not too far from me, but I hadn’t seen it yet. A good friend mentioned it in a zoom meeting and suggested I keep an eye out for it. And here it is, for all of you to enjoy it too. It was terribly windy the day I found it and I was amazed that the photograph came out as well as it did. I didn’t dare wait as I knew it might well have been finished a day or two later. There were few left on the tree as it was! For those of us who are getting just a little tired of seeing friends on zoom and wish we could see more of them in real life, this is proof positive that we can make the best of a situation and come out of it smiling from our efforts. So smile with me friends and have a lovely day, zooming or not! A flower a Day #242

  1. Who doesn’t love a cherry blossom? Whole nations find them irrestible and festivals revolve around them. Their fragrance is intoxicating. Their fleeting beauty the stuff of poems and inspirational of pronouncements of love. Anais Nin said this ..”and the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful the the risk it took to Blossom”. I think this could be applied to the Cherry blossom very aptly. The spring forth with joy and share it with the rest of us. Thank you, Ellie, for this sharing.

  2. Thanks again Ellie . They have lovely little blossoms. We have one across the street from us in full bloom that I can look at out my kitchen window. It is very nice to see. Giving you a big smile.

    1. Smile gratefully accepted, thanks Linda. We have a few up our bank towards the orchard, which I also photographed. But I like the idea that our friends we can no longer see are walking past the same things we are and seeing them, just at different times. Thanks again. Have a lovely day. XO
