Cherry Blossoms Galore

It’s that one time of year when cherry blossoms are everywhere.  They seem to appear overnight, and are gone just as quick.  After a long, cold, wet winter, they are indeed a welcome sight.

And these… while these bushes are quite pretty, they’re a bit of a reminder it’s time to stock up on allergy medicine:

I am joining Jacqueline Oby-Ikocha from A Cooking Pot and Twisted Tales for her series, “Echoes of My Neighbourhood,” where she challenges us all to share a photo of bits and pieces of wherever you are at any point in time.

Got spring?

      Even though I was born in Arizona, my allergies got so bad in the spring and fall. If I wasn’t allergic to the Olive trees, it was the cotton, or this, that and the other. So I completely understand about the allergy thing. They seem to not be so bad for me since I moved up here! 😀

    Very nice, I love seeing trees in bloom. As a side note, that’s one good thing about my living in Texas. We’re already seeing color returning everywhere. On the flip side, the rubber on our shoes will be sticking to the asphalt by May, with a sound filling the air like sizzling bacon. You win some, you lose some… 😉

      Hehe, what a fabulous description of your melting shoes! I actually know your plight first-hand… I’m a born-and-raised Southern Arizona girl! We didn’t move here until about 10 years ago, but I’m loving all the cooler weather these days (I think it’s an old age thing, lol)

        I think you’re right on the “weather acceptability” factor as we “mature”. The heat just kills me now. (The extreme cold is annoying as well, but we only get roughly two days of that in Dallas, so it’s not much of an issue.) I want it to be exactly 80 degrees, every day, or I’m not happy… 😉

    I can’t wait for cherry season! They are probably my favorite fruit. Well, cherries, and bananas, and apples, and melons . . . you are so lucky to get the most amazing cherries out there at a reasonable price!

    I was just talking with my husband about that, and he was saying he should get his sister to ship us some, except then they would be just as expensive, probably!

      I didn’t know you could ship fruit, but yeah, I guess you can!! I used to sit up in my grandmother’s cherry tree (in Utah) half the day and eat and pick cherries. One of my favorite memories as a kid. 😀

      I thought it was early too, but our temps have been in the 50s, so things are all out of whack. Tulips aren’t supposed to come up until April, but my bulbs have started to peek through the ground, so I don’t know what the heck is going on, hehe! Thanks Jane!

      To see the cherry blossums, you have to come in March, but then there’s not much else to see, lol! Have you been to the botanical gardens in Seattle yet? Parts are very Japanese inspired!! Gorgeous, and great photo opportunities!!! 😀

    Beautiful! Some of the racers told me yesterday that a park we were running through in Newark, NJ has more cherry blossoms than the infamous ones in DC. There’s even a 10k planned for when they bloom. On this coast that will in April.
