In search of colour - 9


Soft, muted shades... a grey door and pink blossom.  I'm not sure if this is a winter-flowering variety or a tree that is severely confused by the recent mild weather.  Either way, it's pretty and a pleasant sight on an otherwise grey day.

  1. Again a splendid image well captured and composed . . . the fact that the cherry tree is blossoming is due to the fact that we have enjoyed a mild winter, (so far). One does fear what may happen should "Jack Frost" happen along in the next couple of months meddling with his icy fingers. But on the other hand it appears that the rhubarb growers within the "rhubarb triangle of West Yorkshire are bemoaning the fact that we have been frost free . . seems it important for the succsessful growing of the plant . . . .

  2. I am loving this series Jenny. It takes me back many, many years to the time when I first started using colour film : a time when, as a photographer, you had to almost re-learn to "see" in colour after years of translating everything you saw through the viewfinder into monochrome.

  3. I really am looking forward to the days of blossom.

    So many plants are confused by our uncharacteristically mild winter. I still have two roses in bloom. They've just got stuck in the flowering stage and never moved beyond. I also have snowdrops (already) and a primrose!!!

  4. I think it is confused. I have plants that do that when we have a really warm winter. I like the grey door best but it looks blue to me.

  5. Beautiful shot, but I fear for the flowering shrub or tree. Surely a cold snap will come along to kill the blossoms. Jim

  6. Beautiful. I loved all the stone of Yorkshire, accented occasionally by a bright blue, green, or red door.

  11. Is that a Cherry Blossom tree? It's very pretty!

  12. I know very little about horticulture. If this tree has been tricked into flowering early, can it develop new buds in time to flower again in the spring, or is done?

  13. I don't like to see the trees confused, even if it does make a pretty picture.

  14. Lovely! My flowering quince is blooming -- but there's a freeze predicted for tonight. I'd best go take some pictures.

  15. We've had a couple weeks of mild weather as well, but so far I've seen no blooming trees. Ahh, it looks like a breath of spring air! ~Lili
