Seasonal Blossom


This is the apple blossom from the tree which is next to the ancient burial mound in the woods. The mound will soon be covered with bluebells and you can normally look through this blossom to the bluebells. But this year the bluebells are not out yet. There are a few earlies. Strange though because the blossom is not any later than usual.
I usually up the contrast a bit but decided to keep this soft just for a change.

Very pretty, I like it soft! Ah, nicely seasonal and hopeful!

Phenology is the study of flowering and blooming times and the times of the seasonawhen events occur and different plants and animals use different cues--come light, come temperature, some a variety of other things or a combination. Must be the flowers and bluebells are times by different cues. Mary :-)

Then I guess I must be a phenologist then since that is what I photograph all year round.

Phenologists keep records and notice changes from one your to the next. Are you noticing changes? I know you are when you say something like, Usually the bluebells are out at the same time.

Yes that is why I have been taking pictures of the woods for 6 years. I make note of them by taking the pictures and I have all the EXIF data.
