Cherry blossoms take my breath away

Spring is erupting big time in Seattle. Last week I went walking around the neighborhood with my good friend Daphne Hougard, an amazing photographer visiting from California. Cherry trees line the sidewalk at a park near my house. We couldn't resist taking many photos. Today it's rainy and gray and the wind has wrecked havoc on the blossoms. Oh well . . . .

  1. I hate to see the rain beating the petals off the cherry trees. But this morning as I walked to work (before the crazy mid-day rain), I watched petals from the cherry trees on 14th floating gently down and piling up so that the sidewalk for 6 feet in front of me was completely covered with pink petals. Cherry blossom snow -- lovely!
