While on the warmer side of Washington state in Redmond, I got to shoot some leaves and blossoms of the local trees. I'm not sure if this is a cherry tree or not, but I liked the look of the blossoms and the new leaves. I hope you're having a good, long weekend!

Looks like cherry to me Don, with a double blossom, but what a big bunch

Beautiful! We had a Japanese cherry tree in our yard in Indianapolis when I was a child--shockingly beautiful when in bloom. I don't think I've seen one since.
