STILL IN SAN DIEGO

For Watery Wednesday
For Midweek Blues 





Still in San Diego, see last post about Red Roof,
we walked back from taking some pics of blooming cherry trees, 
close to the water features in Balboa Park. 
Like there is a "play on words," me thinks this is also "a play on images"!
This must be a dream for you who are still in the midst of snow,
to see blossoms in January!
The breeze has blown the white petals of the cherry trees reflected here, 
into the water!

You've already enjoyed cherry blossoms in San Diego! Love flowing petals. Thank you, Jeannette.

San Diego....I love the city. We've been there quite often. The charm, the location, and the whole ambiance of the city is inviting!!!

Love the red roof image below this post also. You painted that? Wow....I'm so impressed. I love to paint and sketch myself [I have an easel on my sidebar with links to some of my work] ---this is one awesome work of art!!!

Very nice reflection/water photo. It's almost pointillist in style.

BeagleAnnie,
They are the first blooming trees in the year, here -that I know of. And they're so gorgeous!

Anni,
I used to paint in my teen years like that -even though I mostly paint with oil in another style now, I thought to myself, why not?
Sorry, I never "saw" what exactly on your side bar, so one of these days, I will!

Leovi,
You've said it well -pure poetry!

Rebecca,
At first it didn't even dawn on me that it might be a good pic for Midweek Blues:)

Diane,
And so romantic:):)

Genie,
Thank you, when I saw the reflection, I knew how good it would look on my blog:)

Nitwit,
As soon as I caught the same as you did, I thought what an interesting pic it would make!

Island Rambles,
Thank you, and I'm rooting for Spring too!

Jessica,
For many other parts of the US and the world, it seems unreal to have blossoms in January, that's why I like the reflection part -as in a dream!

Tina,
Thanks so much, Friend:)

Birgitta,
Thank you, Birgitta! This was taken last week:) (I know it's unreal, while you are still in the midst of winter!

This is so pretty! In the small photo on the Sky Watch page, the water framed by the blossoms looks like a heart!
*happy weekend*
