March 24, 2008

Another Flower Macro shot, but this time plum blossoms. Above, white ones which really makes me smile…notice that below is the actual size of a plum blossom.

This small blossoms when together looks so elegant, very much like a Japanese woman wearing a kimono. Also, in Japanese culture, they play much during weddings and other occasions. It is about this time of the year too (perhaps last week) that they celebrate the Plum Blossom Festival.

But what made me smile the most are the pink plum blossoms! I thought at first that they are cherry blossoms but looking closely they do not have much petals. So far, my most favorite flowers (in order) are sakura (cherry blossoms), tulips and ume (plum blossoms). How about you? What’s your most favorite flower?

  1. Gorgeous photos. I love cactus flowers–so many of them are beautiful, but the pink and red ones on Echinopsis are my most favorite ones.
    Happy GTS,
