The First Cherry Blossoms of May

Every year, I anxiously await the blooming of the old cherry tree outside my window. When it finally blossoms, it's a pale pink explosion of delicate, ruffled petals that sway and dance in the breeze.

The arching branches curve right over the sidewalk, and passersby stop to admire its beauty and pluck a flower or two. I've even seen speeding cars pause and the people inside roll down their windows to get a better look! It's quite a sight to behold.

If only the blooms lasted all spring!
