Cherry Blossom Time

When we visited the botanic garden in Palos Verdes on March 7, the annual Cherry Blossom Festival was in full swing. How pretty is the Japanese Flowering Cherry Tree!

This festival was small compared to the one in Washington, DC and there weren't as many cherry trees, but it still welcomed spring with enthusiasm.

  1. What gorgeous pinks.
    Its a huge contrast to what is a totally grey dear here in England. I had been hoping to see the solar eclipse this morning but there is no chance, the sun is in hiding!
    Thanks for linking in

  2. So beautiful! Wonderful blossoms!

  3. Gorgeous! These are now blooming here and soon we'll experience pink snow as their petals fall.

  4. The cherry blossoms are beautiful. We'll have to wait a few more weeks around here.

  5. They're lovely! We get them in May here.

  6. Sweet! Hopefully we'll have them in about 2-3 weeks!

  7. Wonderful blossoms ! I notice the wonderful green dress ... looks so tahitian or hawaiian !

  8. Already?! Floral life has returned to our part of the planet. Hoorah!!
