Rotting petals

As quick follow-up to my recent post on our cherry blossom, I photographed the blossom again, in it's present state; it now consists of rotting petals:

The blossom was good while it lasted. I'm hoping the delayed spring will produce some more flowers! Sorry for the lower-quality pictures; I shot these through a window because of the rain.

As a side question, does anyone else think that the base of the cherry tree's trunk resembles an elephant's foot?


  1. I'm surprised we don't have more of those petals lying around. We're in a heat wave now, different from Tuesday... it was freezing.
