Tree blossoms...

(edited with one layer of Kim's cora texture, soft light mode, 30% opacity)

Yesterday was the first day I noticed that the trees in our neighborhood are starting to blossom!
I love this quote that we should count the year by blossoms, not by snow storms or rain or problems.
This is a great nugget of truth in my opinion.

Today's prompt for Kim's Texture Tuesday was "from the top" 
so I photographed most of these from above.

  17. Oh my! That third shot is amazing. The detail is fantastic! Spring is still fairly elusive in our neck of the woods. I'm hopeful to see some signs in a few more weeks.
