Lost Kwanzans

While deleting photos off my cell phone (my least favorite photography task) I found these shots of Kwanzan cherry blossoms. I do miss these, along with lilacs and peonies.

Hope your week’s going well so far. I’m afraid I’ve fallen behind on WordPress “Likes,” and hope to get back to doing them soon. It’s been kind of hectic around here, but things are calming down now. Thanks for your patience.

    I hope things will get more quiet soon for you.
    We have some roads with these trees. They are so beautiful. Would they not grow in California?
    My favourite blossoming tree is the Magnolia of which we have many,

    • It’s too warm in the winter for Kwanzans, I guess. What’s strange is that magnolias grow here (we have one next to our driveway) as well as in the D.C. area where the winters are much colder.

    In all of our visits to DC, I’ve never seen these magnificent blossoms – always too early or too late, and of course, we don’t have them in E.TX at all. The closest we come is the wild ornamental pears which, like redbuds, quince, and tulip trees, bloom before almost any trees leaf out. These shots make me want to reschedule another visit next spring . . . due mainly to your AWESOME photos!

    • Oh, I’m sorry to hear it, Susan. I am now wishing I had taken thousands of photos of Kwanzans because it’s just about impossible to time them. At least you have tulip magnolias! They are probably my second favorite.
      Glad you liked the shots. šŸ™‚

  4. We have many of these in my neighborhood. When the wind blows, the blossoms leave a beautiful carpet of pink on the sidewalk. Reggie gets the little petals stuck to his nose. šŸ™‚
