Cherry Blossoms Departing

It is time for Nature Notes Wednesday, and also Outdoor Wednesday.

The cherry blossoms are fading, falling off, dropping to the ground before my eyes, and leaving their branches bare and empty, where glorious beauty reigned for a short time. The season is so short, and once those beauties depart, what remains are the barren branches, lovely in their own right, and the blossoms that lay on the ground, also lovely in their fading glory.

Those gorgeous cherry blossoms are a testament to life, to how short it is in actuality, and also a testament for us to make the most of our time here on the planet.

Oh, and always remember to say I love you to those you love and cherish on a daily basis, including members of the natural environment.

Until I see your beautiful blossoms again, next year, just know I loved your glorious colors. They brought smiles to my face and to my heart.

  1. Lovely reminder and post. The Cherry blossoms are beautiful. Have a great day :)

  2. Yes, the cherry blossoms and many of the spring blooms visit for such a short time. We need to enjoy beauty when we can.

  3. I like how you discuss the cherry blossoms as a metaphor for life in general! Nice post. :)

  4. Inspiring photo and lines.

  5. We don’t have many cherry trees around us, but we do have many red-bud trees that blossom beautifully in the Spring. Unfortunately they, too, are short-lived. I really like the words of wisdom you’ve shared here.

  6. It is a metaphor for the fragility yet strength of the human spirit..beautiful for Nature Notes…Michelle
