Our Cherry Tree

One of my favorite things about our house is the old cherry tree in the front.  It's a great tree, and at this time of year it is magnificent.  For five or more days it is a blaze of pink, and then all of a sudden it is half pink flowers, half green leaves, and then the petals fall and the leaves take over.

Here's the beginning of the pink:

And here's the middle:

Here's the tree as viewed from our second floor:

And up close:

Here's the tree with some azaleas beginning to bloom underneath:

And here is Owen enjoying the falling of the petals:

Spring fever!

Forget the pink cherry blossoms, I need a pair of those super hip red vans that Owen is modeling. Seriously, you have such a lovely house and yard. That tree must make you so happy!
