Bittersweet blossoms

Why can’t the blossoms stay longer? I’ve been holding my breath every time the wind blows because I hate to see the petals fly away. Cherry blossom time has come again and much earlier than expected. I wasn’t prepared! While I wasn’t able to see the blossoms in Washington, D.C., like last year, I did venture to a local park that had trees in full bloom. Here are some of my favorite photos. Until next year, cherry blossoms! And thank you for welcoming spring back into our lives. (Though I can do without the pollen.)
