Last Friday, our weather was so strange and beautiful and the cherry tree behind our home was so laden with blossoms that I could not help taking photos of the edge of the tree throughout the day; here are a handful of my favorites.
We woke up to a foggy, frosty morning, and the blossoms were striking against a backdrop of frosted roof and mist.
A few hours later, the frost had melted and the sun was slanting in from the east (although we had still had a blanket of clouds overhead), setting the flowers aglow.
Then only hours later, the clouds had won out – it was a dark and stormy afternoon – although there were still patches of sunlight here and there, which you can see at the horizon, and on a couple of the flowers.
By early evening, the storm had passed, and a full (but thin) layer of soft clouds covered the sky.
