beautiful blossoms

I am a little cranky this morning, now that we have sprung the time forward one hour AND it is raining and very grey outside. So as a little Monday morning pick me up, I am posting this pretty pic of cherry blossoms Roger and I captured last week - a bit of a rare view, since we were overtop of it viewing downwards. I hope all these blossoms are lasting through all this rainy weather! Hmmmmm... I think it is time for a cup of tea now to wake up. Happy Monday!

That's such a great reminder that spring is on it's way! I think I'll join you and have a cup of tea too!

So pretty! It's lovely here, but yesterday was gray for us. I totally get that blah feeling!

Beautiful pic and great angle on that shot. Yep, we have to hold on to those good days :)

Tea always works as a pick me up, especially if there is cake to go with :) T.

I've had a rough morning with the time change too. I woke up in the middle of deep sleep, and practically crawled to the coffee maker!

I'm out of sorts with the time change as well. Enjoy your cup of tea and here's hoping the rain relents!

It is so rainy and gross here in DC, too. Thanks for the pick-me-up. I can't wait for spring cherry blossoms :)

I love this time of year when the cherry blossoms are in bloom. Nothing like driving past a whole row of them. Stunning! Here's hoping we don't get a windstorm anytime soon!

Just gorgeous! I'm hoping that all of our rain makes for a terrific flower show later.

Beautiful pic, Valerie! You have to love our cherry trees here in Vancouver! All my bulbs are up, too! It's getting really pretty here!

Lovely photo, like receiving a big pink bouquet of springtime.

I am not a morning type of person, so it takes me forever to adapt to daylight savings time...I'd much rather have that extra hour to sleep in. :)

Wow - what beautiful inspiration for a cold, wet and gray day (did I mention it is 35 degrees here?) on the East Coast!

So delicate and pretty - the perfect way to start a Monday. Have a good one!

Grey days make me cranky too. Thankfully the sun finally came out here in Salt Lake. I couldn't stand my cranky self any longer!

Christie Cottage said...

I am an unwilling participant in the time change! LOL

Hope your day has improved!

Lori said...

It's afternoon now, so I'm hoping your day went uphill from there. I was the same way - sure I'll fall into bed tonight! :)

I can't wait to have a picnic under them at the tidal basin in DC!

Maybe it's a case of the Mondays. I hope the tea did the trick! Thanks for sharing this lovely photo, I'm certain it put me in a better mood. :-)

Beautiful blossoms :) I hear you on the time change - it made me grumpy today too!

LuliBags said...

I was just thinking about cherry blossoms today - they aren't in flower yet here. Lovely photo.

Are you going to get one of those pull along baby cubbies for your bike?

No, preggies on a bike doesn't work great!
