Beginning to Bloom


Cherry blossoms with damask frame

Yesterday when I was in the city of Toronto I saw the fruit trees all in bloom.  Here in the Sandbox the Montmorency sour cherry tree is just beginning to bloom.  The apple tree must have lost its blooms during the frosts because it is putting out leaves now.  Usually it is so pretty to see for a day or two.  I am thinking we may not see too many apples on it then either.  I see bits of pink on the redbud and am keeping my fingers crossed to see a few flowers before the leaves appear. 

I am joining Kim Klassen Café for Texture Tuesday.   I used a new texture of Kim’s called Chase.   I added an action of Isobelle LaFrance’s called iris glow and a frame  of hers as well.  I thought it was dainty like the new blossoms.

Beautiful texture Valerie. That's too bad your tree didn't bloom and I believe that means no fruit. :(
Things are really starting to open up here in central NB after several nice sunny days but we're in for some heavy rains this week. Have a good week!
What a wonderful photo! I love it!
Have a great week,

It's been such a weird spring here in Ontario - all my tulips are finished, the dogwoods are blooming and the lilacs are in full bloom. I'm holding my breath they will hold until Saturday as I'm hosting a tea for Mother's Day.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
