Cherry blossoms can last a few weeks and the trees remain glorious, unless, that is, there is rain!
When it rains the blossoms are released and the ground under and around the trees looks like it is covered with a blanket of pink snow.
Each cherry blossom has hundreds of petals! Each puffy, pink spot is made up of dozens of blossoms!
So how many petals would be on the thousands and thousands of blossoms on each tree?
And when they fall, it really looks like pink snow. It rained here the past couple of days. That will knock off the blossoms, as I said. Under this tree were the snowy blossoms with millions of petals left on the tree. It is a beautiful sight!
