This is a Cherry Blossom tree right outside our rented apartment. Last year when I came here, this tree was bare in winter. It resonated with my feelings of finally finding the courage to travel against all odds.
I still remember the spring blooms from last year. It brought a lot of calmness in me. This is one recent shot and one of the first from outside my present home
This is my first tree here. Since it’s right out of my window, it’s easy to track everyday. It’s like looking out to a friend and waving to them everyday. You don’t know them, neither have you talked to them, but that ritual makes your day.
I’ve seen this one shed it’s most beautiful flowers, the green leaves turn Yellow and brown and finally fall down as we entered winter. Totally cold and bare throughout winter, but blooming again in Spring.
If there’s one Life lesson I learned from this tree, it is Patience.
“Knowing trees, I understand the meaning of patience. Knowing grass, I can appreciate persistence.” – Hal Borland
