Blooms everywhere


A visit to the Japanese Friendship Garden yielded an array of trees blooming in every corner of the garden.  Above are blooms on a Bradford tree.

To the left are blooms on the Purple Leaf Plum tree.

Lots of color in the garden right now.

Lovely blooms caught beautifully against an out-of-focus background and that lovely blue sky.

Lots of delicate color and beautiful blossoms. I guess spring is really going to show up this year!

The yellow blossoms on palo verde trees are bursting out all over town as well.

That first shot is just spectacular against the blue sky. We have some purple plums in this area, too. Their blooms are also beautiful!

Always the first sign of spring around here, ours have already flowered. They were about a month early this year.

Beautifully soft colours, too.

Here the snow persists in sticking around.

We have lots of amazing color here too, though you get it with that added, intense southwestern sunshine!

Blossoms have to be one of the prettiest blooms Sharon, such a shame that they're so short lived.. Looking so lovely here against the blue of the sky, two gorgeous images.
