from the ground up



Our Nanking Cherry was ravishing this year in full pink gown. I couldn’t stop looking at it, commenting on it, taking photos of it.  My eyes were opened again to this spring beauty. Like looking through the childhood window of memory at a cherry tree in blossom. Like feeling a story so deep it is like a memory.

“I had made up my mind that if you didn’t come for me to-night I’d go down the track to that big wild cherry-tree at the bend, and climb up into it to stay all night. I wouldn’t be a bit afraid, and it would be lovely to sleep in a wild cherry-tree all white with bloom in the moonshine, don’t you think?”  “Yes, it was a cherry-tree in full bloom outside of her window.” from Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery

  3. The earth seems to echo our joy that the warmth of the sun has returned. Like yeast in warm water we expand and life bursts forth. I greatly enjoyed your thoughts on “Cherry”.

  4. Was trying to figure out how I could attach a photo here (will just email to you). I coincidentally snapped some photos of some unusually large cherry blossoms on 2nd Ave last week. SPRING!!! Enjoy Mutie while she’s there.

    • Lisa, I would love to share your photo here. I’ll put it up, if you want to send it to my email. I’m sure it’s an amazing photo!!!
