Spring Colours

I have some spring tree and bush blossoms today from various spots in the city. The final shot overlooks Dow's Lake. Tomorrow I have an update on that whole sinkhole thing from last week, and the next day I'm getting started with my Doors Open series.

  8. @Tomas: they don't last long!

    @Bill: especially lilacs.

    @Marianne: they do, and here it seems so brief, May into early June.

    @Jan: I had some good sky conditions when I was photographing these.

    @Nancy: thank you!

    @Lowell: I hadn't known one of them was a dogwood.

    @Sharon: I love lilacs too.

  9. It's amazing how thick these blossoms are. The only one I can put name to is the lilac.

  10. This looks like a good spring for blossoms. Let's hope it is a good one for fruits and berries, too.

  14. @Red: lilacs I love, in whatever colour they come, but mostly here they're in that light purple.

    @Janis: time will tell!

    @Norma: they're a short lasting delight.

    @Linda: thank you!

    @Beth: you're welcome!

  16. We have loads of dogwoods down here too, but they are declining due to some kind of blight!

  17. Beautiful trees, William!
    I think the Wisteria is at its limit down here - it might survive up in Ottawa but probably wouldn't flower.

  18. Wonderful flowers and colors!

  19. Winter does seem like a distant memory with all these colorful blooms now.

  20. But for a couple of exceptions, you could have called this a "white out". :-)

  21. @MB: thank you!

    @Cheryl: if these are dogwoods, that's a surprise to me, but others are thinking so as well.

    @RedPat: ah, that would certainly explain it. I haven't seen it here, but I'm not that good with plant identification.

    @Stuart: thank you!

    @Marleen: thanks!

    @Beatrice: and yet winter will be back before we know it.

    @Revrunner: I could have!

  22. Dogwood and lilacs, how magnificent!

  23. So beautiful!! I'm beginning to think that if I want to prolong my enjoyment of springtime I should come your way after ours is done.

  24. Pretty blooms! I look forward to your Open Doors tours.

  25. The blossom trees are too beautiful, the tree in the last shot would look fab in my garden :)

  26. @Lois: thanks!

    @Mari: they are.

    @Kay: that's a good idea.

    @Linda: I'm putting the series together now, though I'm going to break for a few days around the start of the month with some other posts before finishing it.

    @Grace: it's a pretty big tree!
