Blossoms Fading

fallen petals

springtime passing by
now branches filling with leaves
blossom petals shed


I’m noticing the cherry blossoms, oh so recently bursting forth, starting to fall. It is one their beauties, their fragility, their temporary presence. Emergence to vanished is such a short window.

Cherry Blossoms

ah, cherry blossoms!
all the beauty of springtime
encapsulated

I try to walk every day. During those walks, I seek out signs of the seasons, of change, of life’s patterns. Lately, I’ve searched for signs of spring. Crocuses, daffodils, lilies, and now cherry blossoms.

This bouquet of spring

A celebration of life

Sunlight through the trees

Can you believe that this is the last Monday in April? May first is Friday! I noticed that the cherry blossoms are already starting to be shed, the last trees now filled with blossoms. Spring now fully present, at least in Seattle. 

I hope this finds you safe and well.
