Cherry Blossoms

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 22 April 2013 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Don't be fooled! This was taken last year when Chicagoland had temperatures already in the 80's in March and April. Today, this tree is still waiting to bloom. :-D

Spring will get to Chicago . . . eventually. ;-) I saw that a wide swath, including Colorado and the Dakotas, was expecting another foot of snow today.

Cherry Blossoms are always pretty, I really want to see loads of them in one place though. Lovely framing and Illinois weather I think, is plain confusing !
