Cherry blossoms have always been a favorite of mine. There is a long, straight road in my hometown lined with them. When they bloom in the spring, the sidewalk is covered in dainty petals. Seeing all the pink fluffy trees in a row, I can't help but be reminded of trees from a Dr.Seuss book. Or cotton candy.
Up here in Bellingham, I don't have any cherry blossom trees around my house. But, there is a large tree in my neighbors yard that has covered my lawn with leaves. Pink on one side, and fiery red on the other...who needs spring when we have fall?
