Trees that refuse to be upstaged…

By any other flower. Even if their beauty is short lived…

  1. the first two photos are especially gorgeous. and here i thought LA was all about palm trees.

  2. If the wind wasn’t blowing so hard, LA is also quite fragrant to match those blooms.

    Great pics btw …

    Jg.

  3. Oh these are exactly my sort of photographs. I know you do it for all of us, but I take it as a gift. Mille grazie. Love the atmospheric color cast…we have similar flowering trees on “our” coasts…but look so different.

    …on more prosaic note, trying to figure out how delayed the feeds are the last two days. Well, whatever time it is where you are (it should be 5:52PM!), hope you’re well. ciao xo svs

  4. beautiful! sometimes i think the best part of spring blooms is how short-lived they are. it makes me appreciate them all the more!

  5. May all your paths be strewn with flowers, since you so unselfishingly spread such beauty before us all.

  6. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!! I love all of these pictures. They make me happy. I love Spring so much. It’s a time of rebirth, all the trees are blooming, and sun is staying up later and later!
    Awesome post!

  7. yellow is a VERY happy color. A sunburst color.

    at least we know the trees are awake…gives hope for the rest.

  8. ow beautiful! It makes me want to experience spring. but too bad, there’s no spring here in Philippines… =(

  9. just wonderful! I’m so in love with blossoms! did you know that my name means blossom?! :)I’m sort of proud of it!

  10. Oh my gosh. Spring is so pretty!
    I’ve never experienced such a bloom or even spring in my life ever before, sadly:(

  11. SO beautiful! The trees here in Illinois are just now beginning to bloom. I can’t wait to get out with my camera!

  12. Oh, they’re lovely photographs and poem. I like the dominant yellow and pink you catch on them. Simply beautiful.

  13. Olha Tina, o colorido é realmente fantástico, maravilhoso.

    Abraços,

  14. there is so much beauty all around us, right in front of us, we all just need to get outside more. gorgeous blossoms. we are still waiting for it to warm up on cape cod…cool winds still :)

  15. I want your street!

    Mine is pretty, but it’s all green…

    I love those yellow colors – they’re amazing. Reminds me of fall here ( which is my absolute, 100% favorite time of year in L.A.)
