It's Cherry Blossom Time

The cherry trees in the park are in full bloom (mankai) and people are making the most of the short lived beauty of the cherry blossoms. Yesterday on our morning walk in the park I snapped a few shots of the girls with the cherry blossoms. Dixie wasn't being very cooperative and was more interested in what picnicers had left behind! As many people just leave their trash on the ground after these cherry blossom viewing parties I have to be careful that Jazz and Dixie don't pick up and eat anything.

Beautiful! That last shot is stunning - except that the girls aren't in it. You know!
I'd be with Dixie, trying to scrounge for goodies. Our mom doesn't like us to do that, either. Go figure!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful Cherry Blossoms! Mom says she can almost smell them!
Play bows,

Hi, friends!
That is beautiful! Here we can't see that thing happening! Thanks for sharing it!
I like leftovers but not from the street. Be careful!
Kisses and hugs

HM isn't sure how long the meatballs last cos she freezes most of them for training - but can tell you they last AGES in the freezer so they should last a while in the fridge too she would think.
