Bellevue and the Flowering Trees of Spring

It seems that the last two weeks in March are the peak fruit tree flowering time. Looking around today, the blooms are sadly falling and tiny, pretty green leaves are replacing those once-uproarious bursts of color. The princess pinks of cherry tree and the fluffy clouds of dogwoods.

The yellow forsythias are waaay over - those seemed to start in early February, peaking in early March. I don't see any more crocuses but the daffoldils are bravely standing tall in road medians. All decidious trees are veiled in barest green. I guess spring is really coming to Downtown Bellevue.
