Ruby Tuesday - Blooming Trees!

Here in Israel, the trees are blossoming all over - it's a truly beautiful sight. Everywhere you look you'll find these, they look and smell wonderful, and remind us that the winter is almost entirely behind us. I'm embarrassed to say that I don't know if these specifically are almond blossoms, cherry blossoms, or something else all together, but I was pleased to get a shot of them nonetheless!


and a little bit closer:


Feel free to click on either photo, for a yet closer look. The second photo makes a particularly nice background for your computer screen - help yourself!


Naturally, I'm pleased that they fit so well for our Ruby Tuesday theme! To see more reddish photography, head over to Mary's blog, Work of the Poet, to see lots more. Happy Tuesday, everyone!

This is just so pretty. What ever blossom is this for sure a fruit will come out after this. Great shot and thanks for sharing!
