blossom inspiration...

this was the beauty that greeted me for the past week as i was heading into my school each day....
could there be anything more beautiful?
these blooming branches are breathtaking...
my camera was ready on Friday to capture this fading spectacle of glory...
i knew if i waited very much longer i would miss my chance...
all i wanted to do was to pluck off these little pompom clusters ..take them home to fill up my house with their beauty...
BLOSSOM INSPIRATION...
look at these adorable ideas i gathered...
i have been so wanting to make these pompom twinkle lights from velvet strawberries
...they are made out of old sewing patterns or coffee filters
i also love this wall art....more coffee filters...
these pompoms are found at painted white...
don't they remind you of those bloom clusters???


sigh!...it's so sad to think that all those blossoms will end up scattered in the wind...
so this past week that is where my inspiration came from...
all the BEAUTIFUL BLOOM CLUSTERS that fill my school yard...

WOW! What type of tree is that? I want one! My husband and I just planted 3 trees in our yard this past weekend...a pink dogwood, and red dogwood (which is really just a deeper shade of pink) and a white redbud. I saw something like your photograph that had a double blossom, but that is spectacular! Thanks for taking pictures and sharing with us!

Smiles, Nancy
