Looking over some older photos I took in spring. I love spring flowers, especially the blooms that appear on trees. In my yard there are several apple trees – they all grow white blooms on one side and red blooms on the other. It’s odd looking, but beautiful at the same time. I only have a picture of the white blooms here – will have to find the red ones. The Magnolia trees have these plush, silky blooms, pink blooms that only last a few days before a strong wind comes by and blows them away. I was lucky enough to catch them before that happened. And right outside my door is a Crab Apple tree. I grew up with one of these right outside of our kitchen window and my mother and I would just sit and watch the birds flock to the trees and eat all of the fruit – that is until the blue jays would come and everyone of the other birds would quickly disappear.

It’s hard to know how to post my pictures sometimes, I tend to take all of mine with the setting at the largest (in case they’re worthy of becoming a poster?). I’m not really sure why, but I’m just a big fan of close ups and large photos allow me to zero in on certain parts of the photo.
