Cherry Trees in Bloom

Spring in Portland arrives when the cherry blossoms burst

I never tire of seeing the explosion of cherry blossoms. Here are some of the many I saw on a walk last weekend (March 11). Yes, this is a simple ho-hom set of photos, but the blossoms fill me with joy, always.

Earliest spring I can remember in Oregon

The winter is proving to be short, and spring has told us, very boldly, I have arrived. Many blossoming trees are looking lovely. I shot thisĀ at Westmoreland Park, near my home.
