In The Pink



Today's Sky Watch image shows a patch of sky framed by trees that still have bare branches and by cherry blossom trees that are in full flower.

Sorry - I should have brought you this photo a few weeks back but I didn't have time to post it then. I hope you enjoy the reminder of this lovely short-lived moment!

This corner of Mossley, off Hanover Street, is always a good spot to see the cherry blossom. There was only a brief window of opportunity this year as the strong winds quickly parted the blossoms from their branches.

The chimney of Woodend Mill is visible just right of centre.

Sky Watch is a regular weekly feature on this photo blog. It links with websites all over the world with the general theme each week of looking upwards. Please take the opportunity to visit some of these other sites. I hope some new visitors have found their way here today, watching the skies!

  17. These could have been taken here, in Alberta Canada, as our cherry and plum trees are flowering now. The other trees are leafing out too. It is my favourite time of year! Thank you for sharing.
