|Cherry Blossom Petals Floating in Water in a Drainage Ditch|
After a quick weekend trip to the river, I felt the need to revisit the cherry trees, since they were still budding last week. Indeed, they were changed enough to add this PS, or maybe I will call it an addendum to original Cherry Road post. The blossoms were more fully formed, pinker, and many had been blown into the water in the drainage ditch. The blossoms in the drainage ditch is actually my favorite cherry blossom photograph this year. I found this quotation about cherry blossoms: Pablo Neruda, a Chilean writer said, "I want to do to you what spring does to the cherry trees." I would love to know the context of this. Does he want to make someone blossom, or does he want to blow someone's blossoms away only to have them collect in a drainage ditch?
