“The camera can photograph thought.” -Dirk Bogarde


i realized today as i was backing out of my driveway that my trees are no longer blossomING. they have blossomED. i missed the blossoming of the plum trees. my favorite part of spring. in only three weeks, they have gone from bare to full and purple.

was it foresight that led me to photograph these tiny blossoms on february 8th? whatever it was, i am glad for it. i came upstairs when we got home today to go through the photos i took. i guess i didnt totally miss it after all.

  3. Thanks for these photos today. I am longing for my garden to grow. I am longing for green grass and green leaved trees. We are expecting two more snow storms through Monday. There is about 8 inches of snow on the ground now. I need spring to spring here.
