Tree blossoms in Black Mountain

March 28, 2015, weeping cherry tree
Another weeping cherry, showing the brilliant pinks in the blossoms.

The two previous photos are of one dogwood tree.  The following ones come from the tree right next to it, a bit of a different color.

The greening of the mountains is happening, green leaves popping out at lower elevations first.

And my own yard has an ornamental cherry tree.

The brown-green leaves are still predominant, so I'll go out again in a few days.  One year it was so abundant with flowers you couldn't see the leaves at all, but I doubt that will happen this year.

Today's Quote:

Let us not pray to be sheltered from dangers but to be fearless when facing them.
Rabindranath Tagore

  1. our native dogwoods are pale pink and white like the ones you've shown, we are having a great Spring this year


Looking forward to hearing from you! Since I didn't know the 1000+ people who supposedly looked at my blog the other day, I'm back to moderating comments. If that doesn't help, I don't know why blogger doesn't have a filter that stops this hacking...
