32/365 Cherry blossoms

This lovely little cherry tree has been a favorite subject of mine, but this is the first I've photographed its blossoms instead of its luscious fruit.

Curious about the story of this little tree? Check out these posts from Year 1:

34/365 -- How this little tree came to be...
92/365 -- Full of fresh fruit
99/365 -- A modest but wonderful harvest

I adore the bright green grass that acts as a backdrop for the bright white blossoms in this photo. The wind presented a challenge, but I fought back with patience and a sufficiently fast shutter speed.

I can't wait for the fruit!

Camera: Canon 40D with 60mm macro lens, 1/125s, f/5.6 at ISO 640 at about 8:00 p.m.
