Sky and Flower Watching

IMG_9107

As mentioned last post, the plum blossoms are up and there's no way I'd miss the opportunity to photograph them. Thank goodness, I felt much better and was able to go out to take photos of them. There are a lot of plum blossoms around the city, both the normal and the hanging ones, with white, pink and dark pink blooms. (See them soon here!)

So while I admire the blossoms, it is but natural to watch the sky that makes them standout, or at least when I zoom the camera. Not yet in full bloom (below), but still pretty.

  1. Blossom time and the vibrantly green grass springing up as you watch, are great representatives og spring, especially when combined with those pale blue skies.
