I love spring, don't you? Blossom everywhere, including the Victoria plum which was bought for me on Mother's Day by my son Tom when I was pregnant with Isabella. This is the first year it has flowered and we are very excited.
Soft and dreamy against a mid-blue sky.
Beautiful narcissi scenting the air...
and filling the house with their cheeriness
Sweet violets peek their bonnets toward the sun.
The first scarlet tulips open under the old apple tree and form counterpoints against the earth still waiting for the grass seed to germinate, though this morning I notice that verdant haze just beginning.
The damson is still dancing its dance, though the green shoots now peep through the billowing froth of confetti petals.
Spring...pretty isn't it?
Have a lovely weekend x
