Crab Apple Blossoms

A fleeting moment
Of most fragile perfection
Then gone in a breeze
I am linking up with Floral Friday Fotos and Haiku My Heart! I am also linking to a new (to me) meme this week - Flaunt Your Flowers at TootsieTime!!

  23. don't you just wish they'd last longer??? I just hate to see them blow away so soon!
    Once again I am just loving the tour of all the gardens that have linked in to my little party! I am so excited to visit each and every post...they are all so inspiring and I am NEVER disappointed! The creative gardens and colorful displays that I am lucky to see are inspirations that I would never have found had I not found each of the gardeners I see online! Thank you so much for sharing your garden with my Friday Flaunt this week...I do hope you will link in again soon!
    This post is being shared on my Tootsie Time Facebook page too just so you are aware.
