Day 182 – 05/06/11 – Purple Plum

The cherry blossoms from Day 176 are pretty much gone, victims of the wind, the rain and their own short lived nature.  Luckily they’ve been replaced by my second favorite flowering bush, our purple plum.

We used to have a bunch of these bushes, plus two giant purple plum trees.  Somehow through the years and the re-landscapings, we seem to be down to just the one.  Going to have to rectify that one of these days.

The purple plum bush is beginning to flower.

  2. Wonderful composition Jim. White colored subjects are hard to be photographed – but you did very well in this shot. Exposure seems just right and upon close observation, I see the depth in this shot.

    A wonderful shot Jim. I like the red color in the DOF as a contrast to the white…..beautiful…
