He hath made His wonderful works to be remembered... Psalm 111: 4

This was the last self portrait experiment that I did this morning and I prefer it to my previous picture because it shows the blossoms closer and I have my attention more on the flowers than on the camera.. Someday I'll get it right. LOL I am just thrilled to be seeing blossoms rather than snow but I wish the blossoms would last longer than the snow did this winter.

    You did an excellent SP!!! I like to prefer this one to the first SP, you look more relaxed and the blooms show up better. Great entry to the theme!

    Gorgeous! Pink Crabapple are my absolute favorite Spring blossom. I had a little tree of it, but it died.

    Thank you for your kind words....the previous picture was really too distant but at least in
    posting both of them it makes a good comparison for me to decide which one I liked better
    for the challenge..and in the end we ourselves sometimes have to make that decision.
