Each year as the winter temperatures begin to fluctuate with the coming warmth of Spring, a delicate pink haze appears on the delicate weeping cherry tree in my back yard. Her beautiful soft color shimmers against the cloudy gray skies that alternate with bright blue warm days - the blossoms so etherial it seems impossible that they will survive. But since the past two days have been warm, this willowy beauty has burst forth with cloud of color - glowing and bold against the sky.

This incomparable show will only last for a few days but it's a miracle of Nature that I anticipate with pleasure every year.
