Cherry Blossom Time

It’s cherry blossom time and the area I live in is in full bloom.  Mother nature is putting on a show!

Amazing how beautiful it is right now.

To think that in a few months these blossoms will be cherries.  People will come from all over to pick the sweet fruit.  The farmers will open fruit and vegetable stands, and fresh produce will be sold, picked fresh from the earth. 

Mother nature knows what to do.  She provides us with sweet, sweet treats.

The area I live in is new housing, surrounded by old farms. Farms with freshly ploughed rows of earth and beautiful rows of trees. It’s inspiring just to see it! 

My assistant Brigette,  knows most of the farmers in this area.  We’ve promised ourselves some field trips as the fruit grows and the fields ripen.  We’ll bring you with us!

Hope you’re all having a wonderful Sunday.  Can’t believe a week has gone by!  I loved watching Julie and Julia last week.  Loved it!  Meryl Streep deserves an award for best actress, she played the part so well.  A++ for Julie & Julia.  I loved reading all your comments about the movie.  Tell me what you think I should watch next!  I just ordered “Love Happens”.  Have you seen it?

  • Jean - You should take a drive over into my part of the valley. Acres or almond trees, all in full bloom. It’s like popcorn on the trees and snow on the ground. Just beautiful.ReplyCancel

  • Jackie - No fair showing the beautiful cherry blossoms! It will be at least 3 months until we see them. But seriously it is nice to see some signs of life. I am looking forward to spring, for sure. Loved Julie and Julia, but have not seen Love Happens.ReplyCancel

  • Sandy K - I too loved Julie and Julia. It’s funny you should mention Love Happens. I was at the dentist this past week and the hygenist asked me if I had seen it. I don’t think I had heard of it….she said it was a great movie! Time for me to get it “on demand” on cable.ReplyCancel

  • Marie - What a lovely look into spring. I am waiting for the Carolina Red Buds to burst into bloom – they are by far my favorite (with dogwoods a close second behind them). Meanwhile, one more round of snow according to this mornings weather – possible Tuesday/Wednesday timeframe. Maybe this will be the last one.ReplyCancel

  • Sivje - Oh YUM!!! Cherry Blossoms mean my favorite fruit is on the way!!!! I am IN LOVE with cherries!! You will have to take lots of lovely pics of those cherries when there are baskets and basket of them to enjoy! BLISS!

    As to a movie suggestion, this came out a few months ago, but I loved “Accidental Husband”. I may even purchase it. It was a good sewing movie… know, funny-sweet love story, no blood and gore, language was not real bad, and didn’t make me cry. Usually I reserve the category of “good sewing movie” for period pieces, but this one fit the criterion well.

    You may like “Bright Star”. It had it’s definite good points but was rather slow. I kind of did a review of it on my blog. It is a period movie and the heroine of the story is a seamstress.
    Have a beautiful day AnneReplyCancel

  • Mary Anne Drury - (BIG sigh …..) Oh how pretty …. and fresh …. and SPRINGY !!! We’re still buried in snow and blah here on the east coast .

    Let’s see …. movies ….. hmmmmm (I’m in the minority at my house …. teenage boys … so it is a RARE occasion that I get to pick a movie ….. anyhow “The Proposal” with Sandra Bullock was a fun one …. and the only fairly new movie I’ve seen recently.)ReplyCancel

  • Nola - There is a song we sing called “popcorn popping on the Apricot Tree.” It could easily be said for the beautiful cherry blossoms you shared. Can’t wait for spring here. Do have crocus’ blooming however. Just Saw Julia and Julia for the first time Saturday. I, too loved it! And am in agreement, Meryl Streep should get an oscar.ReplyCancel

  • Louise - I am so looking forward to spring. Here in the Pacific Northwest we are starting to see signs of it. My lilacs are sprouting leaves. Also, bleeding hears and lily of the valley along with all my bulbs are really reaching up out of the soil. The birds are doing their thing claiming their favorite of the bird houses.
    For now I need to stay with the hockey game..we need to score.

  • Jean C. - Love the Cherry Blossom pic’s… reminds me of Japan! Such a pretty time of year.
    Sooo now, movie time again… Hmmmm, have you seen The Holiday? It’s a year or two old now… but well worth the watch! Of course the old favorites of You’ve Got Mail and Sleepless In Seattle… that is if your in the mood for a good Romance…. Also, Emma, Pursuasion (sorry can’t spell… and we have no spell check here…) Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Predjudice… are all good. Bed of Roses, Two Weeks Notice, Maid In Manhatten, ….. that’s all I can think of at the moment.
    Enjoy…. I like to throw one into the player and find some project in the sewing room. P.S. Tell Brigette… she did a great job on the “pink” socks! Sooo cute! I don’t knit/crochet so I do appreciate the hard work they take! And I’m with you…. I always have on my slipper socks!ReplyCancel

  • Virginia Brown - I love your patterns and have not been very well the past couple of months so I got busy on the Tisket a tasket. I got them close to half done and got the quilt part of it cut out and ready to go when I get done. Thank you for sharing. I have purchased some of your patterns too. Fun stuff.
    I just got the 3rd block of the snowmen another love of mind. I love the blue embroidery in it. I did a Winter Wonderland that another designer did in red. The blue gives a illusion that its cold outside. Your quilt will keep it company next winter.
    Have you seen the wind chimes made out of the forks. You twist the tines different directions and you could mix the spoons in too. I have done both. Never thought of using them in a planter or garden. It is fun. VirginiaReplyCancel

  • Judy - Great photos.
    The Blind Side is one of the best movies I’ve ever seen. I didn’t know it was a true story until the very end.ReplyCancel
