Carpe Diem #951 blossom

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

It's springtime and everywere you look trees and bushes are starting to bloom. All those wonderful blossoms showing the beauty of our nature. Finally nature celebrates new life after the long cold and dark winter.

Today our prompt is blossom and (as you maybe know) I am a fan of cherry blossoms especially the blossoms of the old Sakura in my backyard. It's already in full bloom and I am proud (again) on its beauty.

All those beautiful blossoms ... they have to inspire you ... so this is the challenge for today: choose a blossom and create a haiga with it.

Of course I have done that myself too ... and I think you all will expect me to use a photo of my old Sakura .... well you are right.

regains its strength
winter departs
