Out My Window

It is that time of year again. When both of the crabapple trees in the backyard literally burst into bloom.

It doesn't last long at all.
Sometimes we are lucky enough to get a hummingbird or more often some blue jays or chickadees in there at the same time.

Never of course when I have my camera handy or I am aware enough to notice until just before a flick of feathers out of the corner of my eye alerts me to the lost opportunity.

Mostly though, I would love to capture the quality of the light.
The white flowers are right outside my bedroom window and somehow they seem to reflect blue sky and sunshine into every interior corner.

There is a breeze coming in that window right now, carrying the light fragrance.

It is heady indeed.

Beautiful! I could almost reach out and touch them. I love flowers but don't go to gardens often. Being allergic to bees, flower beds aren't on my list of safe places.

Oh this is lovely! What a precious time it is when the light and the flower's scent wash over us. Please put a link to this post in my Sunday Garden Stroll meme this week.
