    Maybe it was the mild winter, maybe the dry Spring, but the trees are popping with color this year. The flowers above (name unknown to me) were planted below our Saucer Magnolia four years ago, and this year they bloomed. The petals are falling now on the Magnolias but the fruit trees are just blooming. As I think is typical, I have a sort of love/hate relationship with flowers, they're gorgeous and they know it, so it's very hard (for me at least) to enjoy snapping their picture. Leaves on the other hand (next post) are full of character.

    Both x-t1 with contax 2.8/100

    Thank you very much, mnhoj! Lenses used are:

    1) Zonlai Discover 35mm 1.8
    2) Zonlai Discover 35mm 1.8
    3) Either Fujinon 55 1.8 or Helios 44 - 2 (don't remember which of the two I used here)

    I also use (cheap) close-up lenses on all the lenses in order to get that close to the small flowers but maybe not on the second photo the blossoms.
