Cherry Trees

I took a walk along the river side.  There are a range of cherry trees at the both sides of the river.  Now cherry blossoms are in their full bloom.  It's spring.

The cherry blossoms live short and vulnerable to the rain. When they die, they don't die on the branches slowly but quickly thier flower petals leave from the branches.  So we try to capture its blooming while thier are in bloom before dying.

Also waiting for the blooming of  cherry blossoms gives us hope while we are cold winter season.  But we forget about them once flowers are gone.

I wonder how old this tree is.  Cherry trees definately live longer than us.  I wonder, if trees had sprits, whether they are wathing our human behaviors.
