Cherry Blossoms Come and Go in Record Time – Photo Gallery

Old Mission Gazette

Every year, it seems like the cherry blossoms are here and before we know it, they’re gone. But this year, it seems like blew through the Old Mission Peninsula in record time.

In my blossom story last week, I posted a photo of the sweet cherry blossoms – which started blossoming around May 19 – and noted that the tarts would be along in a week or so.

While that’s usually the case, this year, the sweets bloomed, followed by the tarts within days, and then suddenly, they were all gone. Part of that can be attributed to the storms and excessive rain this past week.

Right now, the apple blossoms are out, but I recommend getting out there and taking photos right now, because any still on the trees will likely be gone in the next day or so.

In case you missed them, here’s a photo gallery of a few cherry blossoms around the Old Mission Peninsula…
