Hello everyone. i hope you are all doing well.
Well, it is that time of year and the Cherry Blossom trees are blooming; not as large as they usually are, but still a wonderful sight. Here are some pics of our street.

Gorgeous blooms!

Fantastic! So spring is actually going to arrive! I can't wait!

Maybe another month here in Maine. Not even our Trilliums are blooming yet and they're the first since they smell like dead carcasses rotting after thawing to attract their pollenators- flies - (Relax, unless one sniffs the beautiful flowers [they really are beautiful] the scent isn't in the wind.).

Gorgeous flowers and great pictures. I'm a fan of cherry blossoms or Sakura as they say in Japanese. In Japan they celebrate this with festivals (Matsuri) where people gather together at parks and open spaces to appreciate the beauty of these delicate flowers.
If anyone from NY is interested, there is such a festival scheduled for this weekend at the Brooklyn botanic garden

I've been there past years, and it is great.
