Vancouver Sky ~ Skywatch Friday, March 24, 2010


Song of Solomon 2: 11-12


See! The winter is past;
the rains are over and gone.

Flowers appear on the earth;
the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves
is heard in our land.


Another winter passes and glorious sunlight is on the way!


Though the skies have been unsettled this week, Winter's earlier warmth meant the blossoms came too soon to the young magnolia trees and to the mature cherry trees. The cherry trees were in full bloom during the Winter Olympics 2010 while I was up country.

On a walk the other day I did manage to find some beautiful blossoms though most trees are now bare in preparation for the late blooming plants and trees. These snap shots will give you a small idea of the annual beauty I so look forward to. With beauty like this every year, it is not hard to see why Spring is my favourite season.

I am envious of your flowers! We have perhaps another month before we see such blossoms.

Joyful said...

@Katy, aw, well I do hope you will take a lot of photos. The cherry blossom beauty is especially fleeting and most of our blossoms are gone :-(
