Totally beautiful!! There is an abundance of flowering trees right now, but I understand what "Mirage" is facing. The winds have been strong here too, and the blossoms are "here and gone" in a flash--gotta snap fast!!!! Mickie :)

Wow- the lighting is fantastic on that first shot!

Rose said...

These are beautiful, Carletta!

Ralph said...

The elegant and delicate blooms are so lovely, and they pack a visual punch that belies their small size. They are beautiful in the soft ruby and white motif. Stunning floral captures, as always!

Felisol said...

This picture is more than beautiful and more real than reality.
I doubt any of us sees what miracle of nature you have shown today. Thanks for sharing.

Patti said...

Wow, these blooms are beautiful. And they were ready for their closeup (bad pun, I guess)

That first shot would make a lovely card.

Happy Ruby Tuesday, Carletta.
