Here in Metro Vancouver, we are typically blessed with an earlier spring than the rest of the country. Not a February goes by where I do not see a few crocuses and more importantly, my first cherry blossoms of the year. Now that it is March we are blessed with full blooms scattered around the city.
My husband took these pics in our yard over the weekend. Wether you are enduring harsh winter conditions like Amy PinkRose with her stunning photos of Niagara Falls or you are in a more temperate zone, these photos have been shared to brighten your day.
Cherry blossoms are so delicate and feminine, yet they are resilient and strong. Their blooms cut through the harshness of winter and remind us that after months of darkness and rest, that a new season of life is blowing in on the winds. Take a deep breath and just imagine their sweet fragrance. Ahhh, isn’t that amazing!
These images were taken with a Nikkor AF-S 70-200 mm F2.8G IF-ED VR ll (telephoto zoom lens) on a Nikon D600.
May we all BLOOM into our best lives as we journey through the garden. – Lisa
