March 22: I think these are apple blossoms...

There's a bit of woods and some very pretty gardens along my walk from the parking lot to my building. Now that spring is springing pretty hard here, I've been enjoying listening to the birdies–I had a sort of peen-peen-peen going in stereo the other day–and looking at the flowers.

Some of them aren't really accessible, or I don't really have time to stop for even a quick picture (which pretty much summed up last week), but I did get some pictures of what I think is an apple tree in bloom. A more distant shot and then a close up.

I've had this point-n-shoot for years and I still have trouble getting the macro mode to focus where I want it to. So I'm very pleased about the second one which hit it just about perfectly. :D

apple tree?

apple blossoms? (I love the dark pink buds with the pale pink flowers and yellow stamens.)

Oh my. That is just about the prettiest thing I've seen all day. You and your p&s did a fine job! If only I could smell those lovely blossoms.
