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.

About Ilona Erwin

Blogging since 2003, writing about a lifelong love of gardening since 1998, I am now surprised to find myself extending into photography and creating digital art! I find it hard to pick a favorite plant or style, I love them all.

Never say never. You could wind up being the winner, you know, because you never know what the judge is looking for. I like your Carolina silverbells very much indeed.

I do say "never" and far too often! I'm so glad you do like the silverbell picture :) It makes me fell peaceful because of the colors and the memory of that lovely day.
