The cherry trees are in blossom. I am so happy to see signs of growth and life after such a hard winter. It means extra to me this spring, since my father died this winter, and I feel like I want to tell him all about the new blooms. He was always interested in our plants and gardens. I feel like if I take extra time to be aware of the moment and the world around me, I can somehow communicate with him in the beyond. Here are the cherry blossoms.
