One of my favorite things to do this time of year is to grab my camera and head over to a nearby park to capture the beautiful cherry blossoms in all their glory. As ubiquitous as they seem at first glance, a closer look reveals a lot of diversity that warrants individual attention. The variation in color, size and shape is a delight to study and the ensuing photos share a bit of what inspired me to shoot. Following my photos are some wonderful table settings found on Pinterest that celebrate the lovely blossom. Enjoy!
There’s nothing quite like being enveloped underneath this blanket of delicate pink blossoms.
Closeups reveal even more interest.
The mix of varied pinks and whites, as well as the diversity in size makes viewing these specimens a sheer delight.
So soft and delicate, they foreshadow the gentility of the coming season.
The lushness of these trees is exceptional.
So pretty up close, it’s hard to imagine this was a rainy grey day.
I love the contrast of dark woods against the dainty flora.
The table settings below make wonderful use of these lovely blossoms.
