I want a blossom tree too...


Blossom and day 7 of a photo a day....

I love blossom. I love the colour of blossom, I love looking at blossom, I love having blossom in my house. The only problem is - I don't own a blossom tree! 
I just have a tree that thinks it's a blossom tree and decides to sprout every once and awhile.
I have been noticing that everyones blossom is starting to arrive early. 
The colours are amazing and I love the fact that some years the colours can change dramatically from one shade to another - it is like opening your presents on Christmas day!
This is the neighbour across the roads tree.....I slinked over, took a pic - and then ran for my life back to my house! 
Pheew they didn't see me, actually they weren't even 
home (it sounded dramatic though).

am also a blossom lover and yes you are right, they are blossoming very very early this year. I have a peach tree that puts on a glorious display every year then snows petals all over my back yard:)

Yes I love the look of them but when they snow everywhere they are a bugger to clean up. Not to mention if they are wet they get soggy.

Lovely shots Kelly! I had to try and paint a pink blossom last week in botanical drawing - I think it was the hardest thing I have ever drawn (perhaps apart from what I am working on today - diggers and cranes....)
I prefer the blossoms.

Thanks Nat, yes I think they are hard to draw too.
They look like they would be easy but the petals are too thin and intricate to get the true look right.
