Sitting under a cherry tree

Under a cherry tree

And as you sit on the hillside, or lie prone under the trees of the forest, or sprawl wet-legged on the shingly beach of a mountain stream, the great door, that does not look like a door, opens.

~ Stephen Graham

I’m going to have to put a moratorium on taking new photos for a few days.  I still haven’t finished going through the orchid photos or all the pictures I took at Lake View Cemetery.  Add to that photos from various hikes, and I am way behind.

Some of today’s photos, by the way, are from Lake View Cemetery.  I want to get a few posted before the trees are completely finished blossoming this season.

Before the moratorium begins (if it begins), I did go out this morning to see what’s happening around the pond and in the woods.

The daffodils in the woods are peaking and looking very pretty in the early morning sunlight.

The apple trees are just beginning to blossom.

Samaras or maple keys are hanging from the maple trees.

And the woods are starting to green.  I suspect we’ll be having another visit from the Green Man soon.

I reckon that’s it from the Bogs for today.  Thank you for joining me on my morning walk.  It’s been a beautiful day, sunny with a high in the mid-50s.  It looks like we’re going to have a pretty sunset this evening.  Let’s go out and sit on the deck, and watch as the sun sinks below the trees in the woods.

Today's view of the creek in the woods.

    I’d love to sit under that cherry tree – as long as the bees won’t bother us! You are taking a lot of the pictures that I’m still hoping to have the chance to take. Very pretty.

  10. It looks so nice and spring-y…seems like such a long time since the trees here were in bloom.
    And those aren’t samaras/mable keys, they’re helicopters! 😉

    Love love love the cherry tree. It is kind of a spring explosion captured in a picture

  16. I swear, beauty just seems to follow you everywhere! I think I need to go on one of your hikes so it can follow me for a day as well!

    That has to be the prettiest tree I have ever seen.

  18. First one is SO cool! Looks so diffused.

    Two of my favourite things about living in Victoria: cherry trees and magnolia trees. Thank you for including gorgeous photos of both in today’s post! 🙂

    Your camera, along with your photographers eye, must be in Seventh Heaven right now! Everywhere you look, there must be beauty! And that cherry tree….words cannot do it justice. *sigh* 🙂
