Okame Cherry Trees are blooming in Charlotte!

I was driving along Ballantyne Commons Parkway today and the Okame cherry trees are in full bloom! The deep pink blossoms just pop out and says Spring to me!! I love that in February we have flowering trees here in Charlotte. If I still lived in the North it would be months before anything would be blooming let alone a tree! Over the weekend I actually saw a weeping cherry tree starting to blossom also. It was warm this weekend, but to see this tree start blossoming was a real surprise to me!

I'm going to enjoy these beautiful trees and try and take some pictures over the weekend. I know if it gets really warm, really fast they will be here today and gone tomorrow. I'll be enjoying them while I can!

Oh Sherri! This is just gorgeous - I haven't seen cherry trees blooming here yet, Macon has a cherry tree festival I've never been to, but I think it would be wonderful!

Sherri- we are in Florida right now- we left the cold gray days up north. On our drive down I also saw blooming trees- what a welcome sight! It will still be 6 weeks or so for us up north to see this gush of spring- I am so ready!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
