ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " E "



Today we are celebrating the letter " E " for ABC Wednesday.
What do these bare trees have to do with the letter " E "?
The photos are my way of showing the Evolving of the seasons.
Winter brought naked trees to my backyard.



As February Emerged so did my blossoms.



Yesterday I found the limbs of the Almond tree Elegantly dressed
in soft pinkish buds.



Here and there were Extremely delicate blossoms. The process from Entirely barren to Emerging flowers is like Evolution.
Be sure to Enlarge each photo to see the detail Emerge.
To see what others have Expressed for the letter " E " go to Mrs. Nesbitts link on my sidebar.
Thanks Everyone for visiting my "E " blog today.

I love how you create a story in picture and word, focusing on letter of the week.
What lovely blossoms! We here in Ontario have quite a few weeks to go for that.
Take care.

Wanda said...

I like your "E"... I love your use of "E" words in your narative.

BTW to answer your two questions.
Someone made the elephants. On closer look it's made of plaster and hand painted. Probably someone in an art class.

Second ~ My Morning Glory was in a 5 gal. pot and about 2' high when planted by my fence.

I'm really having fun with ABC Wednesday.

In my area near Toronto Ontario this has been a winter of the lightest snow fall that I can remember in my lifetime. Still it has been freezing cold! Your photos gave me the boasted that I needed to help me hold out until spring. Thanks to you my winter blahs have gone. Your photos are out of the ordinary!

Beautiful blossom photos. Everything is later than usual over here this year, thank goodness for the snowdrops. I love seeing the bare trees and their intricate structure in winter but I've had enough now and want the buds to appear. Your blossom has cheered me up.

I just can't imagine blossoms in February. It's generally our coldest month. But in April...

Beautiful as always, Sue.

An Exceptionally good looksee at the "E"! Those blossom buds look a lot like tiny ballet slippers being born. Lovely!

I'm so happy you used the term "evolution"; seems to be a poisonous term. Lovely pics.

Ann said...

Do you get a lot pf almonds? I love them, ship some over, on second thought, New Zealand does not allow food to come in.
