Cherry Blossoms & Spring Flowers

So I bought a Kodak Dualux a little while back for 99 cents on Ebay, and I've been having some fun with it. So, I thought I'd post some of the pics I took with it these past few weeks of the pretty flowers in my yard (helpfully planted by the former owners, who, according to the German across the cul de sac when she's trying to make me feel guilty about not caring enough about plants, were part of her now-defunct neighborhood gardening club. I just don't think that a person such as myself who kills flowers practically by looking at them would be very helpful in a gardening club. Instead, I am a secret member of the weeds club).

This one is obviously not taken with the dualux, but it's of the cherry blossom tree in my front yard, one of the biggest reasons why I really wanted this house in particular. It's a wonderful tree, with an umbrella shape that makes it look like a giant bonsai tree. And, for about one week per year, all we can see through the living room picture window is pale pink blossoms. It looks like a painting.

Also a few pics are of the cherry blossoms in DC, which I love to look at but the weather hasn't been so great during the cherry blossom festival time so I only ended up getting a few pics on a very gray day. I think the ones of the magnolia trees came out better.

That's why I like Spring because it's the most beautiful time to taking photos, I wanna buy kODAK camera to catch those incredible photos, besides when I take my generic viagra I start taking photos like an crazy man.
