Well, hello there! You have finally arrived. 😀
After a week of torrential rain we had last week and then the rise of warm temperature helped boost the blooming of cherry blossoms. It’s about a month or so late compare to other places, but having these blossoms showing up in mid May is not a bad thing. There are two cherry trees right outside of my home’s window, but they belong to the neighbors. It’s always a lovely sight in the morning when I pulled the blinders up.
I took the boys out to our favorite park in late afternoon, when the sun cast a soft warmth and glow. Perfect time for a photo walk. The boys did not want to go home at all if had it not for a dinner appointment with my family at 8 p.m.
The park is so lovely adorned with these spring beauties, including green ferns and buds along with the grace of cherry blossoms. I took about 200 photos; a bit overly excessive but I just could not help it.
Darker shade of pink cherry blossoms.
Pastel pink, a bit softer.
Velvety and rich red-maroon-ish (I am really bad at describing shades of colors!)
Peanut is so mobile that I was afraid he would run into the lake so I kept him mostly secured in the stroller.
Our reflection against one of the building’s glass window.
I don’t know where he learned it from, but lately PP likes to “moon” in every photo that I wanted to take of him and with him. I guess it comes with the age, doesn’t it?
