Pear Blossoms

White-tipped trees in the late afternoon sun gave me pause the other day as I was walking back to my car. A woman told me she thought they were pear blossoms. They were all over the place and absolutely gleaming.

We still haven't been to see the cherry blossoms around the tidal basin this year, although we have seen other cherry trees blooming around the city. I'd still like to make it to the Mall at some point this week if we can find a good time to go.

I was looking at tweets about the National Cherry Blossom Festival recently, and I came across a link to an article on Washingtonian Magazine's blog giving advice on how to take good photos of the cherry blossoms. To my complete surprise, they used one of my Instagram photos from last year as an example. How cool is that?

Looking at these photos again is making me think I might need to find an excuse to nip outside before it gets dark. :)

Hope everyone is having a good week. xo, Mary


  1. White blossoms on trees make me so happy. And how cool that they used your photo!

  2. Wow, they are so pretty!
    Congrats for the mention on the magazine blog!!

  3. High-five about the picture! That's pretty cool!

    I almost like these more than cherry blossoms. They feel so light.
