In this part of France, cherry trees are the first to bloom generally at the end of March to early April, and herald the return of spring. Cerisier produces sweet fruit, guignier if it produces sour fruit, and a merisier if it is a wild tree in the forest. But they all flower. Though we will not be around for the cherry harvest, we have been granted an abundance of the trees with their lovely flowers all around Tours, and as their petals begin to fall, they decorate the ground like nature’s confetti. That is until the wind picks them up and flings them into the air once again.
And for your enjoyment, a short video. Best viewed in full screen with the volume on.

Your video makes me feel like I live on that street and I’m looking out my window. Such a lovely scene.
