This was taken in early spring two houses down from where we live. This photograph begins a Springtime series.

Be sure to check out Marie's post yesterday. If for no other reason to hear the incomparable Sarah Brighton. When she sings, I weep.

Oleg from Podolsk, Russian Federation

Very interesting this contrast of forms: one powerful tree and one little frail tree with tender petals.
But the flowering tree is prevailing! Is it right in English?

5 May 2011 5:04pm

@Oleg: Thank you. Your English is fine. I probably would use the word "dominant" rather than "prevailing."

Tede from Aubenas 07, France
