Blossoming Trees in Early May 2014

An old apple tree and a relatively young cherry in my yard have almost always blossomed simultaneously. These photos are from one day in May nearly seven years ago when I tried to record their sudden abundance and interplay.

A key motivation for beginning this blog was to remind myself and others of colors, textures, and vitality that are missing in stark winter weeks. Now in the midst of icy early March, I’ll leap at my last chance to share images that stand in for the luxurious real experiences soon to begin again.

  1. In a word, abundance. These photos show after windy March and “cruel” April, the generosity of May as the trees and flowers display their showy blossoms. 🌺 Tina
