Today's Flowers: Warm in Wilmington
Not a seasonal photo. I took this one in Wilmington, North Carolina, outside the battleship North Carolina museum. After touring the ship with my nephew last summer and preparing to head for the car and the quick trip across the bridge and into Wilmington, these trees and their blossoms caught my eye. I remember wanting to capture the experience of the tree with my camera but not knowing where to look. This is like taking a picture of how an ice cream sundae tastes. Capturing an abstract experience through a concrete image is tough. When you're dizzy in love with where you are and what you're doing, it's all the more challenging. I ended up making of myself a tree hugger and looking up. I'm a simple country girl. It is what it is.
