Pink Flowers

I have to admit that the last two days I have been somewhat under the weather.
Nothing serious,just a spring head cold,but I am on Spring Break and want to be out there
and not feeling yucky.
I thought perhaps some pictures from a few years ago would help to cheer the day.
 These apple blossoms,show the slightest blush of pink.
 An ornamental crab apple tree,loaded with blossoms.
This one is on our neighbors yard,but we still get to enjoy its beauty.
 Take a closer look at these beautiful flowers.
The town of Morden has many of these trees along the streets,and for a short time in spring they are breathtaking.
Still closer.
The flowers cover the trees,before the leaves are big enough to show up.
I hope your days are filled with beauty.
Keep those cameras handy,so as not to miss a single opportunity.

The bleakness of the winter is melted by the sun;
The tree that looked so stark and dead becomes a living one.

Sorry to hear you're under the weather! Just heard that our nursing home is under quarantine. Wasn't at work on Friday and didn't hear it until this afternoon. Lots of seniors sick with a GI flu I think. You take care and be well!

The ornamental crabs are absolutely stunning, I love your pink flowers, Ruth.
I must say again how much I love your banner. The pasque flowers are so special and the pink daffodil is such a beautiful color. I hope you feel better soon.

Wow. Your flowers are really pretty. Am sorry you are not up to par. I am still fighting this cough thing but think it is getting better now.

Ruth I do hope you are feeling better. I've been worrying about you the last few days and came to check on your blog and there you are, laid low.

Lovely spring blossoms. The last crabapple is the same as one in my garder.

All the best my dear.

I hope you are in the pink again Ruth! Spring colds are the worst ones - they happen right when you want to be out and about enjoying spring's arrival. The apple blossoms were beautiful and I hope we get to see them soon but I think we have a little wait yet.
