Vive la Reine by AtomicBrownie Vive la Reine by AtomicBrownie
For once I'm actually uploading a very recent photo. It's for the Spring contest at :icona-place4dreams:.

The title means "long live the queen". I remember that when I was young I'd read the Anne of Green Gables books and Anne had named a tree the Snow Queen... So I'd pondered which one of the trees in my backyard would fit that name. (In fact, several of them do, having white blossoms in the springtime.)

The tree in this photo, however, is one that stands out to me more than the others...When I first moved into my house more than ten years ago, we planted that tree, and ever since it has grown so much. It's really tall and strong now, and always covered with beautiful white blossoms. And I hope she will be here for many springs to come, even when I myself am gone.

:iconyayzplz: This is such a pretty photo! It's so cool how the background is more out of focus than the flowers in the foreground.
And they look so pretty~ :love:

This is amazing! I love the way it's still got dark bluey colours suggesting that there are still aspects of winter, but the flowers show that spring is almost here! I love it, great work :)
