My Favorite Sight in Spring

I was wanting to post this yesterday, but ended up spending the day in bed with a stomach flu instead. I am feeling much better today.

I wanted to share with you one of my favorite sights each Spring. This is a view of our Japanese cherry tree that is in our front yard. Each year it brings me such joy to see it in its full beauty. It has blossomed a little earlier than normal this year. Most years it is in full blossom close to my birthday. This time it is a couple weeks early.

As I write this I hear the birds chirping outside. They too are enjoying this beautiful Spring day. I praise God for the change of seasons and for the promises He gives us. What are you thankful for today?

What great pictures! They remind me of the cherry blossoms in DC. Sure hope and pray that you are on the mend and that you don't share it with the family.

That is a glorious tree! When I was growing up, My grandma had a japanese magnolia tree that looked similar. You made me smile thinking of that beautiful tree that is no longer here.

Glad you are feeling better today!
