A Season In Bloom
I confess. I did not take these pictures today. May Day here is looking, shall we say, 'not so pretty'. It's gray. It's cold. It's damp. It's downright raw and lashing rain. So I'm very glad I snapped these pictures on the weekend when we had some sun. They are a true celebration of Spring and the merry month of May.
I can't say for certain, but if I remember correctly this is some kind of flowering crabapple tree. That is not to say this tree gets any crabapples. It sure bursts into an amazing floral display though, each year about this time.
Made even more vibrant against the Spring grass and blue sky.
Each flower is perfectly wonderful.
I know this is out of focus, but I like this shot regardless. The burst of color and a peek of flowers in focus in the back against the sky.
What a lovely way to welcome May.
