MBS: Cherry Blossom

This tender little blossom turns a whole city pink. Doorways are decked with vibrant pink bows, wreaths adorn lamp posts and entryways, trees drip with delicious pink goodness. An entire city unites for 9 days, forgetting troubles and worries. Children laugh and run, faces painted, arms thrown wide as the blossom snow down on them.

This is my absolute favorite time of year around here. When the cherry blossoms are in bloom, the whole world feels alive with hope and excitement. This is truly a little gift from God--a reminder, at the end of a dreary winter, that hope abounds.

For other MBS, visit Tracey.

We have a flowering cherry in our front yard. It's so gorgeous when it blooms. We don't get blooming until the end of April or beginning of May though. I'll have to get some photos then!
