A long awaited harbinger of spring, the cherry blossoms finally bloom in late May. We are lucky to have a tree in our backyard. It has gone through some rough times but is still hanging on and again put out a magnificent display this year. An unexpected hot spell forced the buds open almost all at once and then heavy rains about a week later brought the curtain down too soon on the wonderful show. The burst of colour and the sweet smell brought in a few bees, a welcome site.
