cherry blossom time


I promised myself last week that I would not post any more pink blossoms. But then on saturday, I was walking on Capitol Hill and spotted this weeping cherry. It was windy and the branches were swaying, tangling me in an embrace of pink petals. It was impossible to get my camera to focus, so I just started snapping photos in the hope that something would would come of it. Well, you need only indulge me a few more days. Soon the air will be filled with those little petals, settling in my hair and collecting in little piles along the sidewalk. They go as quickly and quietly as they come.

Washington is not alone in this madness ~ it is Cherry Blossom Time in Japan too!

These photos are especially beautiful. Another way to treasure the so brief but sweet temps des cerises.
