I was too busy after coming back from a long trip to Vietnam. The Spring this year is almost perfect for flower blooming in the Midwest area. There is plenty of rains and the temperature is not too cold to kill the flower buds like last year. All flowering trees bloomed beautifully. With my new camera (Nikon D-300), I'd taken thousands pictures of flowers in April and May. I selected 50 of them and displayed at my second website: http://www.freebeautifulpictures.com/.
