Pretty In Pink 2014








We had a beautiful bunch of cherry trees this year, abundant with blooms! The bible refers to the trees clapping their hands, and I think this is the time they clap! They only lasted about two weeks, but what a statement they made in that time.

“For you will go out with joy and be led forth with peace; The mountains and the hills will break forth into shouts of joy before you, And all the trees of the field will clap their hands.”

So beautiful! I LOVE cherry blossoms. They have bloom for such a short time and I think it makes them more special. The first image is stunning!

I agree they are clapping their hands!

These trees are certainly lifting their blossom filled boughs to God in praise.

Beautiful trees! I had always wanted to go to Washington DC and see the cherry trees in the spring and finally got to. They create a magical kingdom with their carpet of petals.

Beautiful!! The fact that they are only around for a short time makes them even more special.

Best,

They are so beautiful, Ginny. I just love the blossom....it's such a special time of year! Thank you for coming to visit me at my special place. Yes it is tranquil and somehow, we feel closer to God and more able to pray! I do appreciate your encouragement and prayers over these last months. Blessings. Joan

Aren't they pretty, we usually get high winds when all the blossom appears and blows it all off.
I love your animated picture.
