Blossoms for Sunlit Sunday



Memory. It can make me laugh out loud, or bring tears to my eyes. Remembering things like dental treatments isn't pleasant (I have one coming up in 10 days.) Remembering the sunshine earlier this week is pure delight. Although the rain pours down once again, the memory of a few sunny days during the week reminds me that spring is not far off. Blossoms of palest pink fill the trees. Ethereal tinted clouds line the streets. Spring. Not far off.

Linking to Sunlit Sunday, hosted by Karen of My Little Home and Garden.

Hi Lorrie, What a lovely photo. We have rain on its way, too. I do enjoy the nice, spring-like days!

Beautiful blooms.

The blossom will bring joy to your heart Lorrie - it's exquisite and the sky such a vivid blue.
The beauty Spring brings, ensures that the bad memories of snow and cold pales in significance!

Your springs are so beautiful and come so early. It must be heavenly to see all the blossoming trees. Enjoy and have a great week!

Beautiful blossoms and beautiful sky!

I am waiting patiently for my apple blossoms. This must be the month for teeth, a number of people are having, or had a dental procedure, myself included. Good luck with yours.

Gorgeous - we saw a few flowering trees beginning to show flowers today - but no sunshine. Now the big storm has rolled in and it is blowing and pounding rain.

There is something special about blossom. My crab apple is on the point of flowering, always a happy moment.

Beautiful blossoms! You are far ahead of us here :)

Stay warm and dry Lorrie. Spring really is coming, I promise!

Vee said...

Yes, spring is right on your doorstep. What a gorgeous photo!

Oh, Lorrie! The thought of "ethereal tinted clouds" conjures up my imagination. How lovely that you get to see such beautiful blossoms en masse.

Spring is inching ever closer . . .

Lovely image that promises Spring will spring! :)

Cindy said...

As I look around my garden and shrubs, I notice that Spring is a long way off yet, lol. I guess though, it will be here before I know it.

Angela said...

Nothing says spring like blossoms against a pure blue sky! We were the same here- spring early in the week, then blustery snow on the weekend- winter's last hurrah.

The blossoms are gorgeous.

Cristal @ Dapple Design said...

I think we're both still living off this week's sunshine. Maybe we'll get a little more.

Andrea Dawn said...

Beautiful shot, Lorrie! I haven't seen any trees blossoming here yet, but it can't be too far off..

Marilyn said...

Your blossoms of Spring are just stunning.
Spring has definitely arrived here, even with a few Spring showers the flowers are becoming abundant.

Best of luck with your dental procedure, Lorrie! I went through quite a few of the same six months ago. I have been putting off my next check up because of that..lol!

Spring will be here in a few days--I hope it will be kinder than this winter was!

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Oh please tell me that your blossoms are to come, and not yet there...that would make March the cruelest month to me, not April.

Best of luck with the Dentist, may it go fast.

Flowers are always a welcome sight, whether in person of by photos. I love dainty, little blooms like yours.

Ida said...

What beautiful blossoms. The trees are starting to bloom here too. I should go get some pictures because it looks like we may be in for rain soon.

What a gorgeous photo, Lorrie. The brilliantly blue sky makes the flowers pop out beautifully.
