Buddha in the Bulbs 3/24/14

Flashback Saturday, March 24, 2012 – This is my pick photo of the day for Saturday, March 24th, and stars some plum blossoms fully open flush with the trunk of my ancient plum tree. The other blooms out on the branches are not open yet. I really like how you can see the detail on these small pale pink blossoms just waiting for some pollinators to fertilize them.
