Late blossoms

I stayed on task at my desk in the office today. So wrapped up in a project that I lost track of time...until my stiff back reminded me.

Standing up, I stepped into the courtyard to get some sunshine and fresh air. I glanced over at one of the ornamental cherry trees standing next to the red-brick building.  For a moment, I thought I was hallucinating.

The tree had tiny blossoms that looked as if they carved from bone. I'm guessing their proximity to the sun-warmed bricks coaxed them out long before their time. I shot several picture but the wind was blowing through the courtyard and all the pictures are a little blurry because of the movement so I added the "art" effect to compensate for the picture being a little blurry.

It was a beautiful site to behold in December. I'm sure when the temps dip drastically next week, the blossoms will go scurrying back into their winter sleep.


  1. They're poking out their heads a bit early.

  2. When do they usually bloom? Is this global climate change tricking them? My lilacs bloomed 3 times in 2014, and none this year.

  3. It is nice to get lost in work. Shows you enjoy what you do.
    Strange the blooms in De'cembre!
    Good thoughts sent from Disney!

  4. I know it's not necessarily good for the trees but the blossoms are so pretty.

  5. What a beautiful sight. Glad you got to see it and captured the picture !

  6. I hope the buds will still bloom in the spring. Beautiful blossom... It's mid December... Weird weather...
