April Theme Day: Water


Welcome to April Theme Day: Water!
The pond up the road summons me for an annual photo every end of March. These Yoshino Cherry trees have a luster like snow, and the fowl along the banks bask in the sun along with the greening of the grass. (Click for a larger picture.)

Such a beautiful photo, of a beautiful view!

Wow! My son lives in Washington, DC, and now I can see what he says I have to see. That is fantastic. I bet they smell great. The one year I went all the way down there for the cherry blossoms, they did not bloom! Your photos are almost as good as being there (but without my son!)
