Today's Flowers

For Today's Flowers, I have pictures of one of the surest signs of spring we all wait to see!! Cherry blosssoms and plum blossoms! We have actually had them blooming here quite early this year. Its been a very mild winter and some trees have been blooming since the end of January.
This was a blue sky day, but with these high pressure system days come the wind as well, so getting these pictures clear without blur was a challenge!
These little tufts of blossoms were growing right on the large branches.
I am so short it is hard to take close-ups even with my macro and I was hand holding the camera in the wind so I was lucky to get these!!
Camelia tree blossoms.
Blossoms come in white as well!!

Very beautiful macro shots! And you made them handheld! Great!
Wow, it's amazing to hear that Canada has a mild winter this year, and Austria in the middle of Europe has temperatures below 0°C until mid of March! But now spring is in sight!
Best regards and have a nice week, Maria

Ms.D: What a beautiful show, you must have some help from the ocean to have this great show.

With all that wind you've got these pictures of an excellent quality.
Your blossoms are more beautiful in the pictures than in reality, excellent work.
