Blossoms - Does that mean it is SPRING? :)

Hi All :)

Hope you all had a Lovely Weekend :)

Last Sunday I took a few Photographs of the gorgeous Blossom Trees that are in full bloom right now here in P.Town and I wanted to share them with you here on my blog :)
( For those of you who kindly follow my Facebook page you many have seen some of these already but definitely worth  another 
look :)

(Esp. as the weather has turned cold and rainy and windy again :(

It was the perfect day :)

The Blossoms were full :)

The sun radiating and lighting up the petals :)

Fun shots playing around with background shadows and light :)

Such pretty flowers :)

And a blue sky :)

A hint of blue sky thru the mass of white beauty :)

So abundant :)

The white contrasting against the blue sky :)

What a pretty driveway :)

This is one of my favs. of the weekend, top one is SOOC and the one below is cropped and I took away the heaviness of the branch :)

Which do you prefer???

Gorgeous blooms and photos! I can't wait form my trees to bloom, but at least it finally feels like spring here!

C. - that was what I thought when I saw the driveway - I like the
mystery :)

A - Thanks - I hope your blossom trees bloom soon too - it did feel like Spring last week but now it is cold and rainy again, oh well, at least I have my photos, lol :) T.

Sp pretty!!

It's Spring here, but crazy windy the last couple of days - today its my patio table and my huge japanese maple in a ceramic pot blown over (thankfully nothing broke) but I'm ready for some calmer weather. They've even had to close our local lake, just way too windy.

Hi M :)

My Maple in a pot blow over too!

Crazy Spring weather.

Hope all are well :) T.

Trees bursting with blossoms are a sure sign of Spring (though on occasion Mother Nature throws us a curve ball). ;)
Each photo is wonderful but my favorite has to be the blossom laden trees flanking the winding driveway - it does seem to hint of a story of something that lies just beyond our sight. :)

T@PoppyPlacePdx said...

Hi A. - Yep, the weather has turned cold and rainy again :(

Even though I nearly got run over on the busy road with no sidewalks the tree lined driveway is on, I had to risk life and limb for the shot, too pretty to pass up, lol :) T.

I really like the contrast from the white flowers to the wonderful blue sky. Good to keep fresh in our minds as we go back to cold windy and wet.

T@PoppyPlacePdx said...

Thanks K - yep we need to remember the lovely days :) T.

Sigh. The only white we see here is snow =-(

T@PoppyPlacePdx said...

Your photos are so beautiful! They really make me wish it would warm up here in the Midwest just so the trees can start blooming.
