Snapshot Saturday

I took this picture two weeks ago in front of my home. The Flowering Plum trees on my street were just getting ready to bloom.  They did bloom and now, just two weeks later, the pedals are starting to fall off, cascading down onto the pavement like raindrops. It is such a fast and precious time, plum blossom season.

Linked with Alyce from  At Home With Books and her Saturday Snapshot meme.


  1. Gorgeous! I love the colour, and only wish that our flowering season would start here!!

  2. We have lots of these on our street, too, but they're still not blooming yet! I did some some pink blossoms across town, though, so they should be bursting out soon. I love when all the trees are in bloom! Hard on the allergies but so pretty!

    Hope you are enjoying the weekend -
