The Beauty of Blossoms

I photographed this tree in Wimbledon today, a town near where I live which I visit regularly. I don’t know what kind of tree this is: does anyone know? I don’t think it is cherry blossom; looks similar, but not quite the same. I first saw it the other day, and stopped to have a closer look, as I was fascinated by how beautiful and intricate the blossoms are. It’s important to pay attention to your surroundings, and really look at things, admire and appreciate lovely sights like this; that is where the true happiness of life lies, being present in the moment and paying close attention to your surroundings. I realised that some time back. It’s sad how many people are glued to their smartphones constantly these days, and miss what is going on around them! They miss out on real life, on small, beautiful, magical moments, the joy that comes from simply taking a moment or two to admire a flowering tree.
