Cherry Trees!

Hi, I know it's been FOREVER since I've posted anything. I'm sorry! But the point is, you should notice that I'm still taking pictures and now I've got this post for y'all! :)

The cherry trees blossomed on campus--during spring break when I was back home! Bad timing! Oh well. I did swing by with The Boyfriend during break and took some pictures, and when we returned to school, there was still another week and a half that I was able to enjoy them. So be prepared to experience massive amounts of pretty pale pink and sunny skies!

This picture is taken from about the same vantage point as this (first) picture, taken on a foggy morning. Hmm, I should make a series of pictures from throughout the year.....

Can you see how the trees wrap around the entire area? It's a vision in pink! The Japanese Cherry Trees are actually from Japan, and were planted as a gift from a graduating class. They are planted in the shape of a 'W' for our college. You can't really see it here though.

There were so many people out in the sun during break, and in the evenings. I thought this picture captured the relaxed-feeling that the trees gave me.

I always thought that cherry trees were a rich pink, but I've been finding that these trees and other around campus were actually more white or pale-pink looking. Either way, I wish they lasted longer, but I've got these pictures to keep them around for awhile :)
