I actually had to look up the definition for “blossom” when I saw that we had this as a May theme. ”Yikes,” I said to myself, “How is a ‘blossom” different from a ‘bloom?’ ” So, now I know. Blossoms are the flowers (or blooms) that happen on trees and bushes.
Because May Day feels like a day for flowers… and since our Friday assignment is to celebrate Karen’s birthday weekend… I decided to post this photo of pink Blossoms. I wasn’t so very happy with the focus… so I punched up the clarity a bit with an Aperture preset and thus making the flowers look more painted than photographed. Enjoy!
Maybe if the wind ever stops blowing I’ll give this theme another go. I saw my first Saguaro “blossom” yesterday… May is the month for these beautiful white flowers to bloom. O.K. I’m still a little confused between “blossom” and “bloom” — I just know that it means for another month we get to post pics of our favorite flower shots!
