Here is the last installment of apple blossom pictures I took this spring. For some reason these first two seem to have a bit of an oriental flair, but maybe that’s just me. It’s just something about the foremost of the apple blossoms–perhaps the shape in combination with the glowing light.

Glowing translucently in the sun, white apple blossoms stretch upwards towards the sky in front of a dark forest background. On either side of the sprig of blossoms, pale green leaves with golden veins, spread transparent in the sun, tilting like the gossamer wings of a bird circling majestically in the warm spring air.

In this dreamy photograph a sprig of pink apple blossoms appears to sit at the edge of a reflective pool of water surrounded by radiantly glowing spring sunlight.

This is by far my favorite out of my apple blossom photos. I love the brilliant light that fills it, the delicate pink of the blossoms, and the overall peacefulness and tranquility of it as a whole.

Flooded with an ethereal light, this beautiful Pacific Northwest forest scene sets a perfect backdrop for this rustic little wooden birdhouse. Hanging from a lichen covered branch in front of some glowing apple blossoms, it beacons becomingly for a little birdie to make a springtime home.

The other day when I needed to go to the post office, the sun was out and the weather was warm–perfect for a brisk walk; so, I grabbed my camera and headed out on foot to get some photos and some exercise on the way. When I got to the old elementary school I stopped to take pictures of the tulips there because the plants growing around them made such an interesting background. It looked similar in leaf shape and color to the dusky broad leaved red eucalyptus that is available at most craft stores for use in floral arrangements, only it also had large spiny thorns and little yellow flowers. After searching around on the internet a bit I think it might be a variety of red Japanese Barberry.
