I spotted this wee cherry tree ablaze with bright blooms in the middle of a shady pine forest ... so reminded me of "HOPE" that I had to sketch it to remind myself that when days get so challenging, even the smallest tree can provide the inspiration one needs to go on.

Goodness Lin, this is just stunning!!! It shines and glistens like it was planted from heaven. This is another 'FRAME IT'!

What a bright beautiful tree-- a bright sun-drenched focalpoint in a tall dark forest. A wonderful presentation -- the colors throughout and the bright sunny deep magenta -- a perfect balance.
Good on You!!!

Beautiful pink tree - but really outstanding tall trees too. We barely can see buds at the very end of tree branches here further North.

My mood just got better - here we've just had snow, even though the magnolias have already bloomed. Last week it saw Spring, and now we're back to winter....Thanks for posting this!

There can't be any other title for this beauty..the dark woods are really lightened up by this vibrant splash of color. It is truly uplifting.
Very nice work.

Lin -- this is great! The little tree does shine forth, and the shadows on the forest floor give the little painting stch depth!

I love this little tree proudly shining forth in the dark forest. I also really admire the great contrasts you've got in this little picture -- dark and light, somber colors and warm pink (just the right color of pink too), tall narrow trees and one little roundish one. It's such a tasty picture!

Cherry-trees are such a delight to look at in spring, aren't they. I adore them, too!
