Spring Blossoms

I don't seem to every talk about where I live. I live on an old tree farm about 15 kilometers north of St.Albert, which was my Grandpas landscaping business up until he retired. When my Grandpa died over 15 years ago the business fell apart and what was left of the business, a greenhouse, blew away this past winter. Quite literally, as wind storm destroyed it & my Grandma, who ran it still, decided to retire. 

Anyways, I bring this up because my backyard used to be an Orchard, which is gorgeous at this time of year. Every spring all the tree blossom within a week of each other, but I almost never have a chance to take pictures of them. This year, I braved the light drizzle of rain Monday afternoon to take these pictures. And I even convinced Liam to sit long enough to get a few pictures of his new hair cut. 

In order the above blossoms are a Flowering Almond bush, a Plum Tree, & Nanking Cherry Tree.

Camera: Canon Rebel T1i
Lens: Canon 50mm f/1.4

With love and blossoms;
