Spring is pink and sugary goodness

This time of year in Portland can be shockingly lovely. Like this.

Ooh I want to eat those flowers!

What is it? Crabapple, plum, cherry?

Whatever it is, I love it!

I tried to get some closeups of those, too, but they all came out blurry. You got a great shot.

My guess is one of the red-leaved plums, 'Thundercloud' perhaps. They are blooming in my neighborhood right now. So pretty now but not so pretty later when they drop their fruit (not supposed to fruit but they do) and bring in the yellow jackets. Makes neighborhood walks a dicey prospect.

Great shot (as always), lelo!

this is a gorgeous pic. i finally have a camera again after a couple years without one... and i'm remembering that it's harder than it looks to take good pictures. i'm jealous of this one.

I bow to your photographic excellence.

Amazing! How does one obtain a hi-res copy for use as desktop wallpaper?
