The first warm spring day at the botanic gardens are met with a good turnout. People of all ages, anxious to bask in the beauty of the early blooms. And for whom wandering under the cherry blossom canopy is a rite of spring. So they come early to bear witness – before the blossoms dwindle and start to fall.

a life of beauty
even in its falling
cherry blossoms

Spring Sighting -Tanka Haibun

This winter has not been especially kind to my spirits. A heavy heart loomed, most times out of nowhere. It was hard to get ahold of, or figure out why. This fueled my quest for spring which took its time getting here.Today, I spotted my first cherry blossoms! A lone tree, stands among others that still stood tall, gawky and bare. This lifted my spirits.

 

first of the season
a cherry blossom sighting
as spring takes a hold
the blossoms ripple and sway
in spring breeze, lightens my mood

Front Yard Planter

 

It would be interesting to see this planter fully loaded. Note to self….a return visit is in order.  I came across this on a long walk from the car to the Cherry Blossom Festival in the Botanic Garden this past sunday. I love the color too!!
