The First Signs of Spring

The cherry blossoms are just starting to come out on one tree near my place. 
No signs of blossoms are yet visible in most of the other trees around where I live but it won't be long now. 

I had to use my Android phone camera which doesn't take the best of photos.

I couldn't help myself. I had to capture these blossoms because every year I anticipate the blossoms with eagerness and joy when I finally see them.
I hope to share better photos soon.







Happy Tuesday and happy week ahead.

I'm linking up with

Our World Tuesday this week.

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Nice photos of elegant, beautiful Sakura blossoms. No flowering here in Nara yet, but in southern Kochi, Sakura are at their best. Have happy days ahead.

    1. Hi Shayndel, you touched me with your compliment today. You live in a country where cherry blossoms are at their best so your comment means a lot to me. Today when I was on the western side of the city I noticed the cherry blossoms are much more advanced in their blooms than in the eastern part I have to get out soon with my camera.

  15. I love any fruit tree blossoms, but I think cherry blossoms are my favorite because of how very delicate they are. I hope you are doing well. xx

    1. Annie, I was hearing on the news today that there is a state of emergency in the northeast (I think I heard that right). Stay safe and warm. As for us, we have our first signs of Spring but the weather report is for cold temperatures and snow by Friday. I can hardly believe it.

  19. Those blossoms are so beautiful and a true sign of Spring. Here in S. Florida, we have the most beautiful trees with colorful blossoms of yellow, pink, red, all over the neighborhoods. I should pay more attention and take photos of it! Have a wonderful weekend, my dear friend!
