Cherry Blossom Days


It is peak cherry blossom season here in Vancouver, and after a long, dreary fall and winter, we've been blessed with a stretch of sun and blue skies. I didn't think I was really ever affected by SAD when I lived in NY, but maybe that's just because even though we spent like 85% of our days indoors, the sun did shine more often. Although I was still low on vitamin D.  Anyway, there are cherry trees blooming all over the place, so without further ado, enjoy!  (There might be some magnolia photos mixed in here, I never noticed before how nice they smell.)


The petals are starting to fall already, but that's okay, they make great "snow" and the best is still coming--double petaled cherry blossoms are almost ready to flower.  And then after that, we can look forward to berry season, woohoo!  So our covid case counts might be climbing and our vaccine rollout might be slow, but it's hard to feel down when it's this pretty out.  And that's good.

I feel like I've forgotten how to fomat blog posts, or maybe the interface has changed? Anyhoodle, yup, here I am again. It has been a very, very long year, but spring has arrived, soon to be followed by my favorite season (berry season), vaccines are coming, and I can't help but feel hopeful. Prepare for more blossom photos to come shortly.
