Day 112 – Fragility

White tree blossom spring with vintage edit fragility

“The significance of the cherry blossom tree in Japanese culture goes back hundreds of years. In their country, the cherry blossom represents the fragility and the beauty of life. It’s a reminder that life is almost overwhelmingly beautiful but that it is also tragically short.” ~ Homaro Cantu

Sadly this image was not taken in Japan but right outside my house. Every year it is covered in these beautiful soft white blooms for about a week or so before it all falls to the ground, littering the pavement like wedding confetti. It is fleeting in its beauty but relentless in its annual cycle.

    I don’t think it’s anything to be sad about, to have these flowers right outside your house!!! Cherry blossoms are fantastic, some of the most beautiful things in spring. I have a couple of trees outside the hospital where I work.
