Blossoming

Not sure how it happens but every year the cherry trees decide to blossom and then shed their blossom every where...
The photo on the left is of three of our cherry trees in bloom, sharing their blossom like snow all around the garden, on the street, on the cars and when it is windy even on the people passing by.

The trees are a perfect example of how nature works. There is no vested interest in permanence and certainly no anxiety for the following year. No pondering whether by blossoming this year perhaps there won't be any blossom left for the following year!

As you can see on the photo to the right the trees even share their abundance on the bus stop outside our home. Lots of people comment on the cherry blossom, remarking that it is such a shame that it is here for such a short space of time. I don't think that this affects the trees. They know what they have to do and don't care about the quota of time required to do so. I am going to take a leaf out of their book... please pardon the pun... and enjoy their brief moments of blossoming. I am also going to copy their abundance strategy...
