6-Word Saturday: Spring Break Recap

March roared; April rained; blossoms gone.

The Weeping Cherry Tree in front of my house has been doing a striptease, of sorts, this past week.

Last Saturday, she was in full bloom. But a combo of Fickle Spring Weather (70s one day; 40s the next, followed by wind, then rain, then sun, then rain, then wind) & the advancing of the season has sent these delicate blossoms on their merry way for now.

Walking a little stooped over after a mega-session with several flower beds yesterday. Think I'll take a break this a.m. (well, it's pouring, anyway!) & wait for the sun to come out before I start up again. 6-Word Saturday, natch, is brought to you each week by Cate at Show My Face.

Is everyone ready for Easter? Mrs. Scribe is celebrating in High Style, with an Easter-Themed Silly Sunday Sweepstakes...featuring Peeps & a Real Prize. So don't forget to tune in!

Those blossoms are so beautiful. I hope they smell just as wonderful.

We have bradford pear trees that bloom this time of year. So beautiful. But alas, the wind and rain dealt them the same fate as your cherry blossoms. Petals everywhere...

Thanks for playing!

Enjoy spring.

We've got both pears and cherries in bloom here. Very pretty but very irritating on the sinuses (allergies). When the petals start to fall, it looks almost like snow.

We are supposed to get rain tomorrow, well actually, severe weather.

Great 6 words!

If he goes at night, he'll miss it! The game starts at 3:05.

We used to have a cherry tree, but it only ever got 3 or 4 blooms. Yours looks much prettier.

Our version of cherries is crab apples. They will be in bloom for Mother's Day. They don't last long enough, but oh how I savor them! We have three pink and a white, and our white one looks like popcorn like your cherry tree. Love it!

This is the tree I want in my front yard. Instead we have a dwarf miniture Japanese Maple...which is pretty but no blooms!
