Pretty in Pink

Spring in the 'hood
Flowering Plum 'Thundercloud'

My neighborhood is pretty in pink - fluffy wispy clouds of pink blossoms! Spring is here.

The early spring has continued here in the Pacific Northwest benefits of El Nino. March came in like a lamb. I sure hope it doesn't go out like a lion. The flowering plums are in full bloom and without any rain, the pink clouds dot the hillsides and neighborhood. I feel like I'm walking in a forest of pink cotton candy.

I took my camera with me on my walk today and captured everything that was in pink. Check out what I found that was 'pretty in pink'.

I can't wait! Great photos - especially the Jag.

Gorgeous shots! Yay for spring! BTW, I love pink.

We are behind you - I've only seen a crocus so far. I love the pinks of spring, and your photos are beautiful.

Oh my those flowers gave me chills...so so beautiful! I live for the newness of blossoms in Spring.


What beautiful photos, Marta, the colours are spectacular! I wish it looked that good around here (and the pink Jag is gob-smacking!)


Beautiful pink photos! Love the Jag.. that was a surprise in the midst of all the floral beauties.

Wow, thanks for these glorious photos!! It was snowing (freezing rain to be exact) in my world today. So I am thrilled to experience an early spring through your blog!

Beautiful flowers and a very cool Jaguar! March has come in like a lion for us.
