Cherry Blossoms

 The delicate blooms of the Kwanzan Cherry that is in our front yard.
We planted the tree 19 years ago,  just a few days before our wedding.
So beautiful when it is in full bloom, and it always blooms near our anniversary.

The rain and high winds this weekend knocked a lot of the blooms off, so our front yard, sidewalks and porch  are now covered with  pale pink petals.
A very pretty sight
