An explosion of flowers

This week, the trees of Toronto have burst into bloom. On Monday night, I went to bed surrounded by bare trees. Tuesday morning, I awoke to this outside our carpark:


And then later in the week, my favourite plant, a little plum tree let its colours show. I just adore this tree - I've never seen plum blossoms like it!

This is gorgeous. I'm headed to Ontario in a couple weeks and I'm so excited to finally see some greenery. We're about 2-3 weeks behind you and everything is just barely opening, so your pictures are a real treat.

We're not quite there yet in Ottawa but my crab apple is budded in the front yard.

Ooh! Are you coming to Toronto at all? We'll have full tree coverage by that point, I'm sure!

I just adore the blossoms - they remind me of Japan and of the end of the school year. They make me sad because I know something is passing, but happy because there's beauty in that passing.
