Beautiful brevity

The sakura, or Japanese cherry blossoms,

Remind us that life is short and beautiful.

Perfection.jpg

Buds and blossoms thrive

On the same branch – and so can we if we really try.

Budandbloom.jpg

The pink froth of the petals

Reminds us that time and blossoms are fleeting, fragile and fabulous.

  4. Thriving on the same branch, if we try. Wise words with stunning imagery that makes one wonder if blossoms are more intuitive than people. 🙂

  11. So beautiful, Fi, making me want to post something about my ornamental crabapple trees. I’m not the photographer you are, but I’m enthusiastic about Spring… March winds and April showers are certainly bringing forth May flowers.

    Beautiful words, beautiful photographs, Fiona! They’re stunning! I especially love the first one because of the contrast of the pink blossoms against the blue sky!

    Cherry blossoms always remind me of the time I spent living in Japan!

    Have a lovely week, my friend!
