The name is a back-formation from “selfie”, obviously. Herewith four botanicals only conceivable in the season after winter.

First, a magnolia blossom emerging from its carapace; I didn’t open the shutters wide enough to blur out the background but it’s still kinda cute.

Next, a white camellia with red spots; not a terribly common flavor unless my Internet search results mislead me. Does anyone out there know what this kind is called?

Finally, Sakura; all sorts of focus problems but still, it made me happy to see them, and I hope it helps your mood too.

We have just maybe survived this winter. Rejoice, that won’t always happen.

Perhaps the camellia is virused?
