Beautiful! It is such a pretty in pink time of year when the blossoms are out and blooming!

Mimi said...

Oh Carletta, that second one is exquisite!
I love, love, love apple blossoms with their promise of summer!

Such lovely shots of the apple blossoms--exquisite. The poem is a lovely one too. I know I will always find beautiful pictures when I come to your blog-thanks. Mickie :)

Absolutely exquisite!

So beautiful! And poignant -- it makes me homesick for the Pacific Northwest, where spring is as magical as it is where you live. And I'm also remembering an old tune that my Grandmother played on the piano -- I don't think it was the same verse you have. Hers was "I'll be with you in Apple Blossom Time..."

beautiful photos, we got snow last night, so any apple blossom buds we may have had will no doubt have decided to go back into the tree and hibernate a bit longer!!!!

BJ Roan said...

I love the delicate color of the apple blossoms. Wonderful shots, and enjoyed the sentiment, as well.

George said...

Both of these pictures are beautiful. I really like your macro, but the blossoms with the text is wonderful as well.

Leora said...

Oh, those are delightful! I'm wondering if the tree a block away is an apple tree. Or maybe it's a cherry - I love these spring blossoms, but they are so short-lived.

Donna said...

Oh, How Beautiful!!! I would love to be able to take photos like this!! Gorgeous....
