Spring was well out yielding for summer, and these once cherry blossoms have finally turned brown! Somehow, they were still beautiful and had a whimsical look about them when looking at them in the sun.
Branch of Cherry Blossoms
I saw this tree/plant on the school ground, and when shooting these pictures, and drawn quite a few amusing looks from the parents around me. I guessed they didn't see what I saw!
Pretty Left-Over Blooms
If I was alone when shooting these pictures, I would have come in for a macro shot of those little stamens of the left-over blossom. The brownish red of those stamens were beautiful against the green leaves.
With coarse rice to eat, with water to drink, and my bended arm for a pillow - I have still joy in the midst of these things. Riches and honors acquired by unrighteousness are to me as a floating cloud.~~~Confucius~~~
