365 Inspirations—90: Cherry Blossoms

"Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit."—Khalil Gibran

The cherry blossoms are in FULL BLOOM at the University of Washington. There's been so much sun in WA since we got back from Hawaii that it's almost overwhelming. Not a cloud in the sky at 4:05pm!

So, after a vigorous yoga class, we drove down to the University and had some Thai food and then walked over to the campus and saw the gorgeous cherry blossoms.

Everyone was out and about and enjoying the beautiful weather and flowers.

My husband has really bad allergies in spring. I think he's allergic to grass. He didn't have them until he came to the USA.

Even though he loved seeing the flowers, we couldn't stay too long due to the grass and other pollen that is out and about this time of year.

For some reason, he wasn't allergic to any flowers in Hawaii. He was allergy-free. It just may be the place we settle down someday.

For now, we are enjoying all the beauty in Washington and all this nice weather. Things truly transform when the sun comes out, don't you think?

Is it spring where you are? Have you had a chance to get outside and enjoy it?


  1. The cherry blossums are lovely! Here, there are some blooms out, including the forsythia, which I love. I can't yet walk around outside without crutches, so most of my spring experience so far has been from afar.

  2. This is also the time of year when the cherry blossoms are in full bloom in Japan. I spent 4 years stationed in Yokosuka and I first arrived there when the cherry blossoms were everywhere. ii was quickly disappointed to learn that the trees are all the same sex and no cherries were to be had on even a single tree. But it was quite beautiful to see despite not having fruit to enjoy

  3. Beautiful cherry blossoms.
