Puffy and Pink

Pretty spring cherry blossom borne on street trees a block away from where we live, photos taken during a pleasant morning walk on 25 October. The trees were laden and it was difficult to know how to compose the pictures, thankfully most pics turned out ok. Tapanui, West Otago, New Zealand.

In my recent post Profusion of Pink that also featured fluffy pink blossom, Ellen Jennings left a delightful comment and I replied I’d use it in my next pink blossom post. To see the photo she refers to, you’d need to visit the post.

“Very pretty, Liz! In your third image the blooms look like a powder puff that came in a round package with scented powder when I was growing up.” She finished with this adorable alliteration: “Popping pink powder puff” ~perfect for the bunch of blossom featured in the photo! [psst..Ellen does an awesome nature blog]

  1. Wow, this does not disappoint, Liz! I agree with Ann, both in the difficulty and your success. Those pinks are just wonderful. Will this tree produce fruit, or is it all just show?

    Thanks of the shout out!

    1. Thanks Robert! It was great to get photos before the blossom disappears. It’s too easy to photograph things further away and not get around to getting pics of what’s on my own doorstep here in town! 😀

    1. Thank you! Fortunately I got the photos taken before the sun came out from covering cloud. I was taking photos of a beautiful hawthorn this morning and something fluttered down onto the top of my camera – when I pulled back to see what it was.. found a ladybird/ladybug had landed on my camera! First one of them I’ve seen this season 🙂
