Cherry blossoms in bloom

These early bloomers burst into color around the first week of February and last for about a month. If only they would stay longer.

Hi and welcome to the Daily Photo family! I lived in the Berkeley area for 13 years before I moved to San Diego. I'm very much looking forward to seeing your photos!

Thanks! Glad to be here! I'm from San Diego -- great place.

Oh, thank you! I left Berkeley for Minneapolis 18 years ago, and every February I remember that the plum trees must be blooming in Berkeley.

My pleasure! :)

Hi Allison,
Every February I would wait for those first bursts of plum blossoms. They are like pink popcorn popping out on all the branches, and have a spicy fragrance as one walks down the street. Your gorgeous photo is of an ornamental plum tree, rather than cherry.

That's too funny that you and Felicia have switched cities!

Plum trees! I stand very corrected.
