Thanks David, for giving this beautiful bracha some coverage. Thanks too to Yitz for the other great posts. A shtikl of my own to add - I like to juxtapose "she lo chisar b'olamo d'var" from this blessing with "borei nafashot rabot v'chesronan" [short after bracha for non-bread eating] - so it says that in the OLAM, there are no chisronim - deficiencies, but that in the "nafashot rabot," each of many individual living things, there are deficiencies - hinting at an explanation of the paradox of Hashem's perfect creation [in its entirety] seeming to have so many flaws in our little world of distinctions. Thanks again Kol Tuv -

David , profound & thought provoking proper perspective facilitator ...I guess there can be inherent beauty even when one may find themselves losing their blossoms or grounded in mud.....its all in the emotional perspective and focusing on the fruitful forest as opposed to tripping on the blossom shedding trees.....

Jaded Topaz, Perhaps this is to teach us that even when beauty fades, real, internal beauty, the kind that produces "fruit" lasts.

The cherry tree blossoms in varying shades and hues of pink and white r ethereal and utterly take your breath away beautiful .The question though is why the fleeting beauty.The pretty blossoms barely stay on the tree long enough for visual image processing and before you can say pink sparkledust they r gone with the wind fluttering on the muddy ground along with the rest of the sparkle dust of daily happenstance ......... is it that easy for the "spiritual slumbers and stagnating depressions " to resurface once the blossoms have faded and the cherries have fallen leaving run of the mill greenery and leafery for late bird viewing purposes ....

Very enlightening! I had two posts this month on Birchas Ha-Ilanos, here: and here: You will also find some links in the "Pittburgher" post to some interesting details about this blessing. A good Summer to all!!!
