Pictures of Spring

strange skies

Interesting cloud bank to the west, and strangely colored clouds.


Ornamental cherry trees

I’ve been meaning to get a picture of this street for years. The ornamental cherry trees are stunning. When the petals fall the street looks like it’s covered in pink snow.


UPDATE: I have just found out when the petals blow off the trees and it looks like a pink snowstorm, there is a Japanese word for it:

kissing cousins



tulips yellow and pink

Maybe if I quit taking so many pictures I’d have time to write.

    1. I need to try to get over to get a picture of that now that the petals are falling. Not sure how pretty they’ll be after the soaking rain we had last night, though.
