Pink petal profusion

One of the highlights of spring is enjoying the sakura

Or Japanese cherry blossoms in the centre of Stockholm.

Fallen petal carpet.jpg

The sakura speak to us of

What is possible

Unfurled.jpg

And of petalled beauty

That lasts only a short time,

Petal profusion.jpg

Blooming without holding back

Pretty in pink.jpg

And reminding us that life is like the sakura:

Fleeting, fragile, fabulous.

    Fiona, these photographs took my breath away! OMG…the color you captured is amazing! Pink happens to be one of my favorite colors; therefore I was in awe! Don’t you just love cherry blossom trees? And my favorite thing about them is when the petals fall from the branches, making the ground look as though it’s covered with pink confetti!

    Have a beautiful weekend, my friend!
