This tree–I think it’s some kind of weeping plum, but I haven’t positively identified it yet–caught my attention on a walk last week. How could it not?
My obsession with flowers is no secret–almost everything I’ve been making lately has been flower themed.
So of course I love March, when my city dresses itself up in drifts of blossoms.
I took these pics with my phone, so I wasn’t able to get the usual up-close detail I get from my camera. I’ll have to get back out with my camera soon.
My favorite thing about flowering trees is the contrast between the gnarled, dark, heavy limbs and bark and the airy, bright, delicate blossoms. One of nature’s stunning juxtapositions.
I keep thinking I’ll get tired of taking pictures of flowers at some point. But that day is not yet here.
All the pink flowers have inspired me to make more flowers. It’s like an endless loop; looking at flowers makes me want to make flowery things which makes me want to look at more flowers. You get the idea.
What’s inspiring you this week?
