Kenwood Once More

Let’s go back to the cherry blossoms in Kenwood, shall we?

Here’s a closeup of a cluster:

There’s just nothing like that spring green color–it’s a perfect foil for the blossoms.

In addition to Yoshino cherry trees, Kenwood has an occasional weeping cherry.

I love their shape and wish there were more of them. Maybe they’re harder to grow?

The cherry trees below form the loveliest arches over the street. . . .

Don’t these look like pom poms?

As I said on Monday, we got there in late afternoon, so the light was beautiful. See how the sunlight plays off the blossoms. . . .

I think Jennifer of ledelicieux.comΒ had it right the other day when she commented that cherry trees look like “fairy trees.”

By the way, Jennifer’s site is a gorgeous food blog. Her photos are guaranteed to make you drool. πŸ™‚

Hope your week’s going well so far. . . .

    Thank you for your lovely comment Carole πŸ˜€ Cherry blossoms really are so beautiful. You can’t help but smile when you see them. Did you see any fairies amongst them πŸ˜‰

  6. Cheryl says:

    I’m bedazzled by this array. Gorgeous shots, Carole. The perfume must be heady!

    • Thanks, Cheryl. They’re actually not scented–just a light fresh green aroma. I think if they had a strong perfume, the people in the neighborhood would pass out! πŸ™‚ I would love to walk in a big grove of lilacs, however.

    I want to replace our plum tree with a cherry tree soon – it’s on its last legs. The cherry has fuller branches and leaves.
