More tree blossom love to share-
“It’s just like snow,” yells Araina as she runs through the falling cherry blossoms. Give cherry tree and pear tree limbs a gentle shake to make it snow (gentle shakes not needed on a windy day).
Climb a blooming tree and see how it looks from a bee’s point of view.
