279Days #87 Cherry Blossoms
This enchanting cherry tree shows off its gorgeous form against the pale wall of this building. Today with the buds blooming I had a chance to stop for a few photos. It was raining and the sky was dark but waiting for better weather could change to blossoms into bruised and browned flowers. My eye was drawn to the beauty and it totally overlooked one huge obstacle. Unfortunately, the camera saw the enormous red For Lease billboard in front of the tree.
So instead of being able to capture the whole thing, I bring you bits of it all. I loved the way this branch stood out from the whole and was beautifully reflected in the window.
One thing about getting in close was the surprise of seeing so many blossoms growing from the trunk. Beautiful garlands adorned like a scene from a story book with the moss adding texture and color to the dark bark.
One of the many clusters. So pretty and about nine inches in diameter, but only two inches high. Part of the amazing garland.
Until tomorrow brings new sights…
