Each spring, I look forward to the cherry blossoms. This was my view until a few days ago when we had thunderstorms and strong winds. The blossoms are gone now, and I miss them.

A big thank you to Matt at Radio, Rhythm, & Rhyme for hosting today.

  1. We have a Japanese cherry tree which yeilds flowers similar to a typical cherry blossom, but more pink - and the buds are just starting to appear. Your post reminded me how much I look forward to seeing them each year.

    1. It sounds beautiful, Matt. I just wish the blossoms lasted longer. They are always gone too soon.

  2. Love your new pink dress; so grown up and lady-like!
    My view is a Palo Verde veiled in yellow, dancing in a desert breeze. It too, will soon be just green. Happy spring!

  7. Linda, what a lovely poem. "Alone doesn't have to be lonely" is a wonderful lesson for us all to learn. I especially love "a cherry tree wears her new pink dress."

    1. Thank you, Denise. I think it's important for us to have "alone" time to enjoy nature.
