White Apple Blossoms

I did alert you to the fact that I would be featuring more blossoms and today is one of those days! This one is a white one as you see and if you zoom in on the gallery view, you are treated to a view of the delicate veining on the petals. I had never seen these before myself, only noticing first of all a mass of white blooms on a tree and then a single lovely blossom. I never looked any closer until taking these photographs. Although this is not a macro view, the tiny details in each flower have a beauty that makes it worth a closer look every time. Have a lovely day, my friends. A Flower a Day #276  (NB while I make every effort to identify the flowers I post, I make no guarantee that the name is correct. It’s about the photograph, not the name.:-) )

  1. This photo not only is visually pleasing but it also evokes memories of its delicate fragrance wafting on the late spring air which sets my mouth to watering at the thought that sometime soon there will be fruit to replace these blooms. Apples have always, since my earliest years, been a favourite of mine. It’s amazing to me that such a fine and worthwhile creation as an apple has its start as a visual feast before evolving into a gastronomical one. Wholesome and nutritious either way. Thank you, Ellie, for the treat.

    1. I have early memories (so early) of you eating and enjoying apples (and, if I’m not mistaken, pistachio icecream?), particularly the red ones, Macintosh? Yes, this tree is a feast in every sense. The eyes, the nose, the mouth. Thanks so much, Janet.

    2. wow Janet … you have me thinking about an apple in a way i never have… I am teasing you but Ellies shot of the blossom is natures beauty so I will have to think more about the gastronomical experience … take care . and freezing cold here in Oz today .

  2. This blossom is as beautiful as the last one… so incredibly delicate, and the details are amazing!

    1. Thanks so much Lynne. I’m really glad that these blossom photos are touching you this way. That’s my aim, so I am happy to be succeeding, if I am. 🙂

  3. Very lovely Ellie. Yes I did notice the veining on there but also was intrigued by what looks like a little cluster of leaves in the center of the flower. Never noticed that before I have to take a closer look next year. Thanks again for sharing. Enjoy your day, hugs to you and Steve

    1. It is so fascinating, that’s true, seeing such details, I agree, Linda. It’s a shame we have to wait for another year to take another look, but it’s something to look forward to! Thanks for the comment.
