Ah, spring… my favorite season of all. It’s officially here as cherry blossoms are here!

Sakura (ornamental cherry) are in full bloom now in Boston/Cambridge. Hope you enjoy these photos.

Lower river banks of the Charles is one of the prettiest spots for cherry blossoms in Cambridge, IMHO.

Weeping cherry blossoms and MIT building

Weeping cherry blossoms in front of Walker Memorial (MIT) building (4/25)

This weeping cherry in front of an open French door transports me to a scene of “Cherry Orchard” by Chekhov for some reason.

Just as walking away from this magnificent building, we saw the bionics designer/MIT professor, Hugh Herr, walking into the building. We recognized him from the recent TED talk, in which he invited the dancer with a bionic leg his team fitted, a Boston marathon bomb victim, to perform a dance. You wouldn’t even know he has two bionic legs himself just by seeing him walk.

My lemon tree

My lemon tree is enjoying the warm spring sunshine!

…and that’s Georgie Squirrel, my wild pet who comes to eat gourmet nuts every day. A small pot of Jasmine, Air plant, and a grapefruit seedling are at the base of the lemon tree. (Green onions, too!)


Georgie Squirrel is a girl squirrel (^_-)~☆  (Georgie is a nickname for Georgianna)

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a superb spring, friends!
