Running In The Rain

A cheery sight. An explosion of tiny pink blossoms.
Nothing shouts out Spring to me more than the sight of the first flowering trees.
In the rain I can even smell their scent before I round the corner. (Running in the rain does have some rewards.)
This beautiful blossom was pinched from a small group of trees along the boulevard.
To note: It is native to central and eastern Europe – not Oregon.
