Windy Blossom Riot

Well, it's a wet and windy morning here in Victoria but the Japanese Flowering Plums think it's spring. Every year I say a silent thanks to the people who decided long ago to line Victoria's streets with these trees that burst into bloom every March. They're just starting now but in a few days they will explode into pink popcorn balls of blossoms. And, when the wind stops blasting in from the Pacific Ocean, I will post a more placid view of these wonderful flowering trees. You'll just have to imagine how sweet they smell on a quiet sunny day.

I love your photos, it's so nice to be able to see other places through the eyes of a local.
