Snow in April

My Japanese cherry tree
is in full bloom.

The whiteness of the blossom
quite startling
against the Spring blue sky.

Little breezes create
petal flurries

and the grass beneath
is downy with April snow.

'Member last year we really did have snow at Easter? (ok so I don't think Easter was April in 2008 but it was close!)

How beautiful! I keep meaning to take a picture of our cherry trees on the allotment, but I always end up at the plot without my camera. Our trees are dwarf varieties though, so nowhere near as amazing as yours. K x

Mine too and I could stand under it all day. Your last photo has an oil-painting quality about it - lovely.

ahhhh I was out and about in the park yesterday admiring this very same thing, I just adore blossom.
We have a short avenue of bright pink cherry-blossom trees just up the road and I am waiting waiting for them to burst into flower (they flowered in early May last yr, so a week or two to go).
I mean, i do love the white blossom, but the rich pink does it for me more. Roll on May.
