It’s Raining Pink Petals and It’s Pretty

We have this really pretty Quanzan Flowering Cherry tree. It’s usually loaded with blossoms and then they blow away with the wind, like in these pictures. It’s so pretty.

The cherry tree also happens to be the birdhouse tree. Several bird families live here.

Every time the wind blew the pink  cherry blossom petals flew through the air and I tried getting a picture of that.
Here is a picture of the wind blowing and the petals flying but it’s hard to tell that from these pictures. Darn. It was so beautiful!

Petals falling

It looks like pink snow covering the ground, doesn’t it?

On the pond, the flowers settle.

Some of the birdhouses in the cherry tree were looking pretty sad so I took some pretty cans of spray paint and had a ball.




Blossoms are sticking on the birdhouses.


I wish I could have taken better pictures of the flower blossoms blowing in the wind.

Hope you had a great weekend. my friends,

  1. So pretty!! We had no spring blossoms this year, it is so sad!! Spring came and then winter decided to take over again for several weeks, so when it warmed up again just the leaves came. So I really love seeing your pink blossoms raining down!

  2. This looks so pretty! thanks for sharing those lovely pictures.

  3. so pretty Linda. I love the bird houses.

  4. What a birdhouse collection you have! I missed my blooming cherry trees this year. maybe next year my daughter will send me some pics of them!


So happy you came to visit today. Everyone is so busy but if you would like to leave a note for me, I would love it!!
