Hi PHeymont, Travel Rob, DrFumblefinger, Thank you all for the comments. Yes, planting and watching flowers grow in the backyard is one of my favorite pass times in the summer. Here in Calgary, Canada, although the growing season is short, the flowers seemed to know how to take chances! The resulting beautiful blossom and brilliant colors make all the hard work worthwhile .

Beautiful piece! This time of year is bittersweet to me because we went to visit my son in Japan two years ago for the cherry blossoms. We were supposed to be there this year too but Covid restrictions linger on. So later in the year we will go. Thanks for letting us see the cherry blossoms from your great photos!
