Flower of the Moment: Wild Cherry Blossoms
Early this morning I, Loba, Rhiannon and a student headed up the big arroyo to enjoy the gorgeous weather and flowers. Stepping between the boulders and little green things, we made our way about a mile further up into the mountains. We were delighted on every side by the colors, smells and the little quick-footed lizards weaving between our feet. Virgin’s Bower vines wound out of every crevice and Wild Cherry flowers dangled above our heads. We stopped for a snack of pesto and veggies on a beautiful smooth stone that Rhiannon dubbed “The Fairy Table”. I’d managed to bring along my little digital camera so snapped a few shots of the various flowers and plants as we walked along. My photography (and camera) are nowhere near Wolf’s quality of color and composition, but I thought they’d make lovely blog pics nonetheless. Here’s the first installment, all of my current favorite flower (at least until the Roses bloom), the delicate spires of our local Chokecherry.
