Japanese/Canadian Friendship

On the very ordinary - in fact, ugly - walk to Cherry Beach, there is an unprepossessing knoll, a small park, with a collection of young cherry trees.

The story is explained here. Thank you, Japan!

Once up close, I was in ecstacy. The soft clouds, the deep blue of the sky we could see, and the profusion of blossoms... I couldn't leave for a long time.

I think blooming cherry trees are one of my favorite spring things! Your photos are amazing!

I can relate to how you felt. These are those precious moments in time, that we never forget.
Lovely images.
