Cherry Blossom Time

Cherry blossom time is almost over in Portland, but you can still find a few flowering trees here and there. Soon it will be time for the Magnolias and Dogwoods to do their thing. These photos are from several weeks ago at a park in the Sellwood neighborhood. There is a cluster of cherry trees there that must be over 100 years old. Going for a walk under trees like these with the petals fluttering by on the breeze as they circle toward the ground is absolutely one of the most magical things about springtime.
