Every year I can’t resist taking photos of my plum tree in bloom. This year it seemed to go from just budding to full blossoms in one day. It’s in full glory right now. The problem for me was trying to find a new and unique way to capture the blossoms. I mean, how many ways can you photograph plum blossoms? Well, happily I think I found one. What do you think of this?

Plum Blossoms

This morning I was up early and enjoyed the view out back of the rising sun capturing the freshly forming maple leaves. Interestingly, living in Canada my entire life, I’d never noticed that maple trees have blossoms too! I know. For shame, for shame. They just happen to be green and they’re quite lovely!

These were taken with my cell phone and I continue to be impressed with the camera on it. However, hopefully this weekend I’ll be able to take a foray into the blossoming park-lands of Ottawa with my DSLR and capture some more.

Until next time, enjoy the nature around you whatever the season!

  1. I tend to take pictures of simple things I come across with while walking. It’s just one of the multiple advantages of not driving a car.
    I call that pictures “every day images”. Yours can be included in that category.

    1. Now that I’m working and unable to walk as much as I used to, I really miss taking those kind of photos, Gabriela. I’m glad you can. Enjoy! 🙂


    1. Thanks, Ingrid. Isn’t it wonderful to be able to get outside and to see all these beautiful plants and flowers popping up and out again?! 🙂
