Blossom

The cherry blossom is still wonderful in Edinburgh, despite so many petals having been torn off the trees by the wind and rain that our pavements and lawns are pink and white! I took this photo yesterday when the weather was dry, today it hasn't stopped raining!

If, like me, you like taking photos of woodlands then you may be interested in the Visit Woods photo competition. Basically all photos uploaded to the Visit Woods website between now and 30 June will be entered into the competition. Even if you don't win, you will be adding photographic records of our woods to this interesting and useful online resource!

What soft colors! I think I like that much better than the darker pink cherry blossoms.

Such elegantly pale cherry blossoms! They appear to be the same variety as the ones that bloom in my garden (multi-petaled) but ours are a much deeper pink, making them look just a bit artificial. Ours are just starting to bloom now. It has been a terribly cold spring.
