Our First Cherry Tree Blossoms

Happy floral Friday! This week in my Maryland garden we have our very first cherry blossoms on a tree planted in our yard last year.

I took these photos just yesterday and the tree is already starting to leaf out today. Cherry blossom season is wonderful but fleeting.

I love their pretty petals so it's really something special to have our own little tree.

Thank you for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my cherry blossom photos. If I feel energetic I'll sort through the hundreds (perhaps over a thousand) of cherry blossom photos my husband and I took last weekend around the Washington D.C. tidal basin and share the best with you in an upcoming post. But I'll post links from previous years' photos in case you'd like to see some right away.

May God bless you and fill your heart with His peace, love and joy!
