Cherry Blossoms in their glory

Pink fluffly blossoms, so graceful.
Our cherry trees blossomed and were at their fullness about two weeks ago.  I love seeing the branches heavy with their floral pinkness shouting out their glory.
Alas, last Monday our trees began to rain...  the petals gently flowing down on slight breezes.  It seems magical to walk beneath the trees in one of the moments when the pink petals choose to let go and do their final dance to the ground.  And for a little while our driveway, flowerbeds, the road, the yard are blanketed in this wispy fairy pinkness, and I savor that too.  Spring is defnitely here.
