Digital Photograph - Cherry Blossoms


This weekend was full of blue skies and these big puffy clouds that look like cotton candy. Glorious. As I turned the corner there they were these cherry trees in the library parking lot full of blossoms. I pulled over and grabbed my camera. I was not the only one excited, they were covered in honey bees. I thought I would share these blossoms to start the week out with something beautiful and pink.

Beautiful! I'll have to take my new camera out for a test run and seek early bloomers. It's still cold here in Oregon but the buds are on the cusp of breaking open.

What an uplifting and gorgeous image! We are on day 3 of torrential downpours for 24 hrs and my ark is no where to be seen. :(

Lucky you spring has sprung in your neighborhood!

Wow. Thanks for reminding us of what is to come (still at least 6 weeks away here in Michigan). Someone else suggested enlarging this up for wall art. I agree, especially in the square format.
