Pink Cherry Blossoms

It's February, so of course the cherry trees are in bloom! Are they cherry trees by the way? Theyt look like it to me, but it could be another pretty tree for all I know. I didn't know that the trees started blooming this early, but apparently they do. The flowers have even started falling to the ground. It's almost like being in a Japanese garden. I went for a walk with my camera, and here are some of the results. This is in our neighbourhood. 

Aren't they pretty? I feel a bit enchanted by the pink flowers. It's sort of a wonderland, exept for the concrete streets and curbs of course. But they don't need to be in the pictures now, do they? There's a tree in our street that's even more packed with pink flowers, but it was in the shadow, so the pictures didn't turn out very well. Maybe I'll take a photo of it later some time. 

In Pasadena there's a big garden complex called Huntington Gardens. There they also have a big library and  museum. I've read about the Japanese garden there, and I believe that the place must be full of pretty pink trees! The Japanese garden is closed for the time being due to maintenance, but according to their websites it will open again in April. I think we have to go there then!

  1. Så nydelige farger:) Dette var pent å se på. Kan jeg stjele et bilde og bruke det som bakgrunn på telefonen min?
