  1. Hi, Tammie Lee -- first, thanks for your comments on Anne's new blog about the self-portrait. As one who has done this already, you know it's an interesting experience!

    Second (and more important) -- this is absolutely stunning -- all your photos are. Of course, you're a nature photographer -- but boy! You REALLY are! They dazzle me.

  10. I'm watching cherry blossoms literally turn into cherries from my office window. I've never had such a "birds' eye" view before. This post reminds me of it! Fun!

  11. A very apt metaphor for motherhood, Tammie. First the bloom, then the fruit. What buds are these? Have a happy weekend!

  12. That is so true. I'm trying to get out every few days and take some photos of the same buds that will eventually become peaches. We'll see how that goes. Nice shots.

  19. Thank you for drawing our eyes to the ethereal beauty around us - the circle of life. For every fruit there was a blossom. For every blossom there was a seed. For every seed there was a fruit ...

  35. Hello Tammie, I'm back after the great ICT Disaster of 2010, armed with a new computer but sadly minus many of my photographs. Just starting the rounds of my favourite blogs. Gorgeous blossom shots. Hope your mother liked her card. Have a lovely week,

  38. :) I love the swelling buds of spring that promise the fruit to nourish and delight! They are so beautiful, timid somehow, yet seductively sensuous.

    You've captured their verve in these images.
