Pink snow?

No, but it looks like it! These are fallen blossoms from the Yoshino Cherry trees that were featured in a previous post. We have had a lot of rain for the past two days and unfortunately the beauty of the trees was short-lived. I'm not going to complain about that though because last year at this time we were experiencing the early stages of drought that lasted all year.



  1. I think that having all the fallen petals on the ground is so lovely. It kinds of extends the beauty of the tree's flowering and makes for very mystical pictures.

  2. The pink "snow" is beautiful :)

  3. Phillip,

    Hello, that is the perfect kind of snow! Lovely photos...we have had lots of ran and my hope is that we can over come last year's drought but some plants are gone forever.


  4. That's the only down side of gardening. The flowers don't last long enough. But that is also what makes them so special!

  5. The beauty may be temporary, Phillip, but it's real! I like the photo of the birdbath - it seems to be calling mythical birds to come for the petals.

  6. Wow, that's nice. Maybe some of my neighbor's cherry petals will blow in to my yard now that he's removed some plants that obstructed it.

  7. Wonderful photos Phillip. Your garden looks like an absolute paradise. I would never leave it.
