First blossoms

Monday, March 22, 2021


I've been patiently watching this tree over the past month. There are three cherries almost in eyeshot from the house and they are always very early to flower in spring. For the last couple of weeks I engaged C with the task of snipping some low hanging fronds to pop in a vase on the mantlepiece. You have to cut them before the buds have opened. The warmth of being indoors sends them into flowering overdrive and in around a week they have finished and start to litter spent petal everywhere. When indoors, I can detect a gentle scent but outdoors it gets lost, despite the far greater volume of flowers. 
The picture on the wall is a perfect match for the flowers. 


Meanwhile, the tree is resplendent in the spring sunshine.

The neighbours may well think I'm mad, going to town photographing a tree. I think you'd be mad not to.
Take care,

  1. Yes, I've been a lot of photography of trees too! Nothing mad about it

  2. Never mind the neighbours! This transient beauty is too wonderful to NOT snap it!
    So gorgeous. I love the comparison to your painting!

  3. How can you not photograph such lovely blossom? It's too beautiful not to. Blossom is the start of all good things - spring which leads to summer, and longer warmer days - Yay!!
    I love the branches in a vase teamed with your painting, they look so good together.


I love to hear your comments xx
