Golden Elm Tree Blossom
Golden Elm Blossom
It's mid-spring again and the Golden Elm trees in my garden have just burst into blossom. Their flowers are a stunning light lime-green colour - so much more subtle that the pinks and whites of the show-off flowering cherries and crab-apples nearby.
Subtle and Green
But subtle doesn't necessarily get photographed very much, particularly when it's green, and in competition with all the other fresh green spring growth. A tree with green blossom above eye-level can so easily be taken for granted, when there are pink, blue, and yellow spring things below.
The vibrant lime-green Golden Elm leaves will appear soon enough and they'll probably be relegated to being a 'backdrop' for all the gorgeous colourful things underneath, too. This just doesn't seem right, does it?

These beautiful trees are not being properly noticed, nor are they getting the appreciation they deserve. It's time to set the Moosey record straight.
I love you, my Golden Elm trees, and finally I've got some gorgeous photographs of you in blossom, thanks mainly to the eagle eye of my camera-wielding web-master. Go, you beautiful trees! And thank you for being such a groovy colour, particularly when there's blue sky above you!
