Plums blossoms with puffy white clouds to match

When I was a little girl, my siblings and I played a lot of make-believe. A favorite make-believe game I liked to play was "Candyland" where my siblings and I would pretend we had entered an all-candy world where everything was edible. We would have our adventures out in the garden. The redwood bark was really chocolate. The clouds were cotton candy. And there was always some drama with a make-believe villain we had to fight to protect our "Candyland".

To this day, when I see puffy white clouds against a blue sky I still think of "Candyland".

I'm not much of a hyacinth grower although I like them. So I don't know about red ones. Sorry.

My plum tree has started to leaf out!

Hi Cindy!
I love the photo and the memory that came from it.

Hope you are doing great! By the way, I did finally get two orange trees. They are small but doing well.

Deanna :D

I loved Candy Land and enjoyed playing it again years later with my children.

Oh yes...how I wish there really was a world made of candy...like in the original Willy Wonka...where the flowers and such were all edible! Although I don't think I could eat too much of it these days....LOL

That is a gorgeous photo. It says 'Hope' to me- hope that spring will soon be on it's way to my neck of the woods!

Lovely and creative shot!

I had so much fun last year photographing the spring trees in bloom. I can't wait to see them again.
