C is for Colors of Spring

Spring is finally bringing some color back into the world.

Cherry blossoms, okame

It’s lovely.

Cherry blossoms,

These cherry trees (Prunus x incamp ‘Okame’ cherry) were not only nice to look at, but had a beautiful sound as well.

Cherry blossoms,

They were humming. Filled with bees.

As one of the first trees to open in this particular park, it was the place to be if you were a bee.

Unfortunately you can’t see them in the photos, but I’ll always remember their soothing sound.

Magnolia flower, pink and white

The magnolia trees were the only other flowering trees that were ready to show off on this particular day.

The sign for this one below listed the name as Magnolia stellata ‘Centennial’ star magnolia

They had some pretty pink stripes on the back of each flower.

It’s so nice to have spring here again.


I’m participating in the A to Z Challenge for the month of April. The idea is to post every day, except Sundays, and end up with one post for each letter of the alphabet. It’s a good challenge to help me to blog every day.
