April 22, 2010 Backlight~

I couldn't help but return to the Apricot trees. The blossoms smell so sweet and are here for such a short time. The bright sun was shining on the blossoms and those that were backlit caught my eye. The petals become somewhat translucent they seem almost to glow! Since this photo was taken time and the rain have removed all the blossoms from the tree. A reminder to stop and embrace, enjoy and immerse yourself in the joys of today. Each day brings something we can delight in if we look for it. I believe this is true even in the midst of trial. Have you found yours for today? I hope so! Blessings~

  1. Beautiful Apricot bloom, I did not realize that they would even grow up here! I have never seen an apricot blossom before..Thanks:)

  2. Thank you! My father in law loved fruit! There are apricots (very tasty!) big pears like you'd buy in the store and tiny pears, (make great jam and crisp), raspberries and of course several apple trees. My plum tree died last summer but we have apples, gooseberries, currants, grapes, strawberries and raspberries. We are a fruity bunch I guess!

  3. This really shows how delicate the blossoms are. Beautiful photo!
