Macro Monday - Apple Blossom

The path to my front door is flanked by two pairs of apple trees – at this time of year, albeit briefly, they produce whorls of wonderful flowers. I managed to take this picture just in time. Winter had not really given up its grip and the day after I took this picture my garden was coated with a counterfeit snow of apple petals. A few hardy flowers hung on, but generally the show was over. Today it’s warm again!


You can find more macro shots at Macro Monday.

Gorgeous blossoms, and no doubt about it. My autumn is your spring, and blogging is a reminder of how beautiful are these cycles we call life.

What type of apple tree Stewart? The flowers are much fancier than our apple flowers.

Just lovely. All our flowers have died off and we won't see any blooms for another six months!

Love it Stewart! It's so delicate.

Gorgeous! And I'm just a tad jealous. :)

This is so lovely. We are into Fall here and all these lovely blooms are but a distant memory until Spring arrives again.
