Spring Blooms Past and Present

I was looking at my stats yesterday and I saw a google image listed.  I clicked on it to see what it was.  It was this picture from a post two years ago.

I barely even remember taking this picture.  Here is another one from the original post that you can see here.

The branches from my trees were so pretty, I decided to go out and cut some today.  Unfortunately they will not be photographed in my dining room this year.  I hate to say it, but it is a disaster.  It has been a "workroom" since I rented my space at the antique mall.  OK.  Back to the flowers.

Today I put the flowers in a large watering can in the kitchen.

More cuttings in a basket that will get put in a vase later.

It was quite windy today.  There were so many petals blowing off the trees, it looked like snow.  Only it was 80 degrees and the ground was a pretty carpet of pink.

I'm glad I was able to share my flowers with you again this year.  If only I could send the fragrance...mmm, wonderful.
