A Pink Carpet

I love this time of year. From the first daffodils to flowering cherry blossoms and crab apples, the splash of color is such a welcomed sight. I took a walk this morning to enjoy the warm temps. But finding a pink carpet of petals on the sidewalk made me even happier that I’d come out. Later on the wind rustled another tree and a few petals floated down. I tried to capture it on my camera, but alas it was too fleeting. I once wrote a poem about falling leaves, and I thought the same words apply to these falling petals.

    Very pretty pictures. It sounds like you had a nice walk this morning. I did notice we have a lot of flowering trees in our neighborhood also.
