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.
These colors of the births of flowers are very tender.ReplyDelete
The trees are blooming beautifully. Their scent must be nice to smell.ReplyDelete
Trees look suddenly so different when they are blooming.ReplyDelete
Nice to see all those beautiful blossoms under that clear blue sky.ReplyDelete
The trees are blooming beautifully. What a great sight!ReplyDelete
Love the dogwoods and the crepe myrtles...our crepe myrtles are really blooming right now and I'll post a couple of those shots. You are overcome with gorgeous flora in Ottawa! Attaway Ottawa!ReplyDelete
Those trees are gorgeous and I always love seeing lilacs.ReplyDelete
@Tomas: they don't last long!ReplyDelete
@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.
It's amazing how thick these blossoms are. The only one I can put name to is the lilac.ReplyDelete
This looks like a good spring for blossoms. Let's hope it is a good one for fruits and berries, too.ReplyDelete
We have these in our neighborhood, too!ReplyDelete
Beautiful! I especially love your third and fourth photos!!!ReplyDelete
gorgeous blooming trees. i bet the scent was every where. too pretty!!ReplyDelete
i had to tell the hubby about your comment yesterday on the Forrest Gump movie, he was laughing. i said if i am ever in Ottawa i have to meet my buddy William, you keep us laughing. thanks for that!! laughter is a must. & the best to keep ya going on a daily. have a great week! ( :
@Red: lilacs I love, in whatever colour they come, but mostly here they're in that light purple.ReplyDelete
@Janis: time will tell!
@Norma: they're a short lasting delight.
@Linda: thank you!
@Beth: you're welcome!
Woweee!! Those shots are magnificent!ReplyDelete
We have loads of dogwoods down here too, but they are declining due to some kind of blight!ReplyDelete
Beautiful trees, William!ReplyDelete
I think the Wisteria is at its limit down here - it might survive up in Ottawa but probably wouldn't flower.
Wonderful flowers and colors!ReplyDelete
Beautiful shots, William!ReplyDelete
Winter does seem like a distant memory with all these colorful blooms now.ReplyDelete
But for a couple of exceptions, you could have called this a "white out". :-)ReplyDelete
@MB: thank you!ReplyDelete
@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!
@Beatrice: and yet winter will be back before we know it.
@Revrunner: I could have!
Dogwood and lilacs, how magnificent!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Pretty blooms! I look forward to your Open Doors tours.ReplyDelete
The blossom trees are too beautiful, the tree in the last shot would look fab in my garden :)ReplyDelete
@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!
Looks nice, and some probably smell nice too.ReplyDelete
Oh how beautiful!ReplyDelete
They are gone so soon!ReplyDelete
They looks so soft and pretty.ReplyDelete
Yes they do.Delete
