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
