Blossoms and bees-unbeknownst to me, there was a bee within the folds of two of the cherry blossom photographs, below. I was surprised to see them when I uploaded them.
When the flower blossoms, the bee will come. -Srikumar Rao
Joy comes from places you least expect it. It’s usually the simple things, like watching my son play basketball or going through Central Park when the blossoms are blooming. -Dave Gahan
The significance of the cherry blossom tree in Japanese culture goes back hundreds of years. In their country, the cherry blossom represents the fragility and the beauty of life. It’s a reminder that life is almost overwhelmingly beautiful but that it is also tragically short.

I spent a day at Descanso Gardens, this past weekend, to attend the Cherry Blossom Festival.
I rained in the morning, but the sun came out at about noon. My morning photos are rather dismal looking, what with the overcast skies. My afternoon photos were much more enhanced due to the sun.
The above photo with cherry trees in the background, was taken in the cloud-covered morning.
We were walking through one of the many paths when the sun came out, and the trees were almost bare looking, but getting some buds on them.
I loved the tones of these lovelies.
Why not go on over to Our World Tuesday and browse through the many photos on the meme.
More photographs of the gardens will follow throughout the next few days.
