|These are some of the first wildflowers of spring.|
They are related to mint, but I don't remember what they're called.
|The violets are coming up in wonderfully dense patches under the apple tree!|
I've tried reminding myself that I already have 2 or 3 years worth of apple blossom photos; I still feel that this cluster of flowers just has to be captured in a photo, too.
|a tremendous amount of blossoms|
|such pretty clusters|
|I could crop it close-up to show emphasize|
the green leaves, white flowers and pink blossoms
|...or I could crop it further out to show|
the overall arrangement of the buds and flowers
|Look at this lovely zig-zag of blooms!|
I love the dogwoods this year. They are young volunteers and their blooms were rather sparse last year. This year, they have lots of big flowers.
I took a few photos of the clusters of flowers.
I like the overall look of the trees, but I haven't learned to take pictures that really capture that look the same way my eyes see them. I can photograph the individual flowers and the view from below the canopy, but not the whole tree.
