Plum Blossoms



Did you know it will officially be spring next week? I’m so glad! We’re seeing signs of it throughout our neighborhood, little splashes of brightness here and there – daffodils, crocus, candy tufts – and our daphne smells divine! But most of all, I love seeing the plum blossoms start to open. Every year about this time, I take a moment to bust out the good camera and document the opening of their tiny pink buds. So sweet and serene and lovely.

This plum tree is actually in our neighbor’s yard. A few years ago she allowed us to dig up a runner that we placed it in a pot. It hasn’t gotten much bigger, but just last week David planted it in the back corner of our yard. Someday we’ll have plums! I’m looking forward to it.

  1. What fun photos! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Lovely shots. We thought spring was arriving here in Edinburgh but the snow came back today…

  3. Hi Anna! That is so nice to read, especially coming from a professional photographer! Your photography is incredible. And how funny about the season where you are – I would love to have more snow to photograph around here. We only had one snow and it barely lasted a couple hours. 🙂

  5. This makes me really crave spring. I live in Michigan and we still got some time until it hits us.

  6. Yes, I can’t imagine! I love snow, though, so I wouldn’t mind if we got a little more here. I think this whole winter we had one morning of light snow, but then it was gone by noon!
