Walking Petals

When we walked out the door this morning, there was a slight breeze. Many of the cherry blossom petals were flying in the air and it was gorgeous. It looked like it was snowing dainty pink petals.  Buggy said, "Look Mama, walking petals!"  Boogs corrected her and said that petals don't walk.  He also said it looked like it was snowing petals, not "walking" petals.

When we were walking through the parking lot to go to the grocery store, many of the petals on the ground were being blown by the wind and lines of petals looked like waves with bits of individual pink petals dancing on the asphalt.  Buggy looked at them and said, "See, I said they were walking petals. Look at them walk."

She was right. The petals looked like they were walking and dancing. I wish I could have gotten a video of the petals "walking" or being blown around. It's so pretty. I'm sure by the end of this windy day, many of the cherry blossoms will be gone from their branches. But it sure was pretty while it lasted.
