Butterfly Blossoms

This is one of my favorite trees in the spring. I find the pink shade of these particular flowers to be very unique and the tree is spectacular. I also think the flowers look like butterflies, especially from certain angles.

This is most likely the first of several posts with photos of spring’s beautiful trees. I have a hard time putting down the camera when every day brings new colors, new blossoms, new artwork of nature to capture.

I hope you enjoy this set of photos and the ones to come!

  1. Wow, you are right, that is a spectacular tree! You got so many good angles for your photos — they are all nice, but I really like the last one. With the pink blossoms and the blue sky and all the branches — very nice!

    1. Thanks for your kind comment! πŸ™‚ The trees really are amazing in the spring – they blossom very suddenly, but then the flowers also disappear very quickly too!

    1. Thanks very much for such a kind comment and for stopping by! I had a great time taking pictures of this tree – I had to tell myself to stop eventually… πŸ™‚ I agree though, it’s hard to beat the beauty of tree blossoms!

  2. Gosh, I love dogwood! And these photos are simply gorgeous.

    Just wanted to stop by and thank you for the comment you left on my Freshly Pressed post last week–Top 10 Reasons to Join the Bloggy Blast. Sorry it has taken me nearly a week to get here. Clearly, I have been missing out. I may not be a “third culture kid” myself, but I have traveled and lived in the third world–spent a year in both Vietnam and Haiti.

    At any rate, want you to know how much I appreciate your stopping by. I hope to see you agains soon! Thanks again!

    Hugs,
    Kathy

    1. Thanks so much for your wonderful comment, Kathy! I really enjoyed your freshly pressed post, but also many of your other posts I read after that one so I’ll definitely be stopping by again! I’ve never been to Vietnam or to Haiti – those must have been amazing learning experiences, although I imagine it was not always easy.

      I’m really happy you enjoyed these photos and that you stopped by – I hope to hear from you again!
