Cherry Blossoms - Mosaic Monday





"Anne blew a couple of airy kisses from her fingertips past the cherry blossoms and then, with her chin in her hands, drifted luxuriously out on a sea of daydreams." 
L.M.Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

While driving through town these days, I'm prone to distraction. Along every street, singly here and there, or marching in grand allées (de grandes allées in French) in front of houses, cherry trees are blooming. In parks. In empty lots. Pink clouds of sweetness. Sure signs of spring. Although the skies may alternate grey and blue, although the wind blows chill, spring is well underway. Hooray for spring, I say! 

Linking to Mosaic Monday, hosted by Mary of the Little Red House. There's sure to be more posts welcoming spring there.

  2. Sounds like pretty scenes with all the tree blossoming. No signs of spring here, winter does not want to leave. I do enjoy your pretty photos, thanks for sharing.

  7. What a pretty mosaic!! Thanks for sharing their beauty with us. Some of the flowering trees are in bloom here, but not as full/pretty as in past Springs. Spring is really slow arriving this year.
    Thanks for stopping by and nice comment on daughter's creations. I think daughter said she made the hat for someone to give as a gift to a baby boy. Sundress is granddaughter's and she will be "styling" on Easter. :-D
    Hope you have enjoyed the weekend.

  8. Love your pictures and your quote. I am a 74 year old lover of Anne and am hoping to get to the island this summer. My husband hikes the mountains of NH. and Maine, and this year I have decided to go. I want so badly to see the play and the area. I used to teach Anne with my English students. She is the love of my life....other than my husband. genie

  12. Stunning....

    Although we don't have the ornamental cherries up here, we do have acres upon acres of fruit trees that coat the land in a marshmallow haze.

  14. Beautiful mosaic, Lorrie!

    I will have to visit Denver to see the cherry trees when they bloom along Cherry Creek. We had 8 inches of snow this weekend so I think I will have to wait a little longer to do that ..lol.
