Cherry blossoms are starting to show around the county and I thought this cool photo from the 50s would help get you in the mood.

You can see more old cherry blossom pics in Don’s slideshow and a whole bunch more shots in the group’s cherry blossom slideshow. has a ton of articles and photos of cherry blossoms – don’t miss this great feature on cherry blossoms by Cherie Spaulding and a bit about the history of cherry blossoms in Leelanau.
