The deadline is midnight tonight... and I decided at the last minute to enter this entry for "Flowering Trees". Just for fun, because I already picked the winners in my head, and I would not be among them. Two favs were one colorful closeup and one atmospheric longshot. I would choose emotionally, not being a photographer. Such beautiful pictures- I highly recommend that you spend some time viewing really pretty pictures of many different types of trees in various parts of the country. I also was awed by some of the magnolia photos- the beautiful blooms and creative compositions.
I really think that garden blogging is coming into its own.
Thanks to GGW for hosting these themed photo contests.
The entry photo is of the elusive silverbell tree, Halesia carolina.
