Cherry Tree at Night

I mentioned last week that we’d stopped by Hains Point one night to see the blossoms as we were driving back from Virginia.

Cherry Blossoms at Night

Going at night made it less obvious that the trees were past peak-flowering — leaves and blooms blended in the more monochromatic light — but you also lost the lovely pinks that draw people to them in the first place.

I’m glad that we saw the blossoms in any format this year and seeing the cherry trees at night had been a bucket list item. But as with many things you look forward to for a long time (like room service), it pales in comparison to the imagination. Next year, I’ll be back in the daylight.
