Pink Trees Everywhere!

Spring comes early in the Willamette Valley, Oregon, where I live just outside of Portland in historic, Oregon City. One cannot look out a single window without seeing the resplendency of flora in my favorite color, pale pink. Enjoy!

How beautiful! The cherry blossom trees here in NJ are a little late blooming this year due to our unseasonably chilly weather, but they are just beginning to add some cheerful pink to this area too. :)

WOW! Those photos are incredibly beautiful. I cannot imagine what it is like to see so much beautiful pink and especially against that gorgeous emerald grass.

The little book arrived today--love it--and the "extra," too.

Thanks for sharing that beautiful pink today. Not quite spring here yet, but soon.
