Spring = Cherry Blossoms

To me there is no better harbinger of Spring than the cherry blossom...
When I was going to Berkeley I met a wonderful friend, Eric, he is Japanese and at that time volunteered at the Golden Gate Park.  At one point he had some cherry trees that had come from San Francisco's sister city in Japan.  I was lucky enough to be the recipient of one of these trees.
 Not having an appropriate place at the time for this amazing gift...we planted the tree at my mom and dad's house.
Every year it rewards us with these gorgeous blossoms...and announces that Spring is on it's way...

Thanks for taking care of the tree all these years Dad!!!  You raised it up right!
