Sparkling Pinks

We went to DC last weekend to see the Cherry Blossoms. It felt like a lot of people had the same idea as the area was crazy crowded. The weather was near perfect and the Blossoms were in “peak” bloom looking gorgeous against the clear blue sky. I like the sparkling picture a lot (below right); the petals had fallen into the lake and placed themselves perfectly with the sun shining on the water to give it a diamond-like effect. Well the Blossoms have come and will be gone – I hope summer comes soon.

Life is all about these beautiful 'time off' moments. You're wise to fit them into a busy (and getting busier!) life.

'Tis the season to be cherry, fa la la la la, la la la la!
Enjoy, my dearies, the seasons as they come. Love those photos.
Y'all want summer to be here, we know that. But it is not supposed to arrive until I get my outfit ready (ask your Mum how I'm pestering her, Alef).
Love
Phil

Oh my goodness, I absolutely ADORE these! They are so beautiful.. I think you should consider selling your prints on ESTY.com.

Wow that picture is truly magical...the sparkly effect looks like it's a Disney movie and the fairy god mother just left!

I agree - you should get think of selling prints - that is one beautiful picture.
