I am always so jealous when I see all the gorgeous pics of cherry blossom trees on other people’s blogs. They just look so enchantingly beautiful and we just don’t get them here in Los Angeles. The closest thing we have to a cherry blossom tree are the lovely jacaranda trees…they bloom a gorgeous bright violet flower that is simply stunning. Once they bloom, I’ll be sure to post some pictures, but until then, here are some cherry blosson snaps I took in Portland. Just being able to take some cherry blossom pictures of my own made the whole trip worth while!
