  1. Did the cherry blossoms survive the frost? Weather is crazy this spring, at least in the Rocky mountain area. Snow on its way this afternoon for the fourth week in a row! My niece (who is an East Coast girl going to school here) calls ourmweather bipolar.

  2. Just beautiful. When I was growing up, we had a cherry tree in our front garden and I used to love lying underneath it and being showered with the petals!! I’m picturing a blousy lacy shawl in pale pink – would be fab!!

  3. green grass … *whimper* flowers … *whimper whimper*

    So. Jealous. Stuck in “Never Gonna Be Spring” here in Wisconsin…

  4. Wow I think Toronto must be 2 or 3 weeks away from cherry blossoms yet. The daffodils and mini-irises only appeared late last weekend.
    I love cherry blossoms!

  5. Really enjoying the photos of budding trees, flowers and grass. Here, in southwestern Nova Scotia, Canada, I am only dreaming of these fantasies. The temperature is low, the wind is cold, the sun almost non-existent. However, because of these photos, I have hope.
