One of my favorite times of the year is when the Yoshina Cherry Trees are in full bloom.
We have nine of these non fruit-bearing trees on the front lawn. Ornamental in nature only.
What a joy it is to be outside when they're blooming. The constant buzz of honeybees, the frosty and snow-like petals against the backdrop of clear blue skies, makes one feel that maybe there IS a spring this year after all.
