Trees full of Spring blossom are perhaps one of my most favourite seasonal things, surpassed only by tree branches heavy with snow.
With trees bursting in to full on cotton ball gorgeousness I’ve gone a little blossom crazy this week.
There is just something wonderfully optimistic about blossom, a real sign that the gloomy months are behind us and sunshine filled days are straight ahead.
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom”
- Anais Nin
I can’t resist borrowing a few twiggy branches and displaying them indoors.
Back in our garden I’m the proud owner of yet another hydrangea….a blue one, called Bloomy Three. I picked her up from Sainsbury's of all places, she looked awfully sad, no sunlight or water for a good few days obviously didn’t agree with her. Yet, some trimming of icky leaves and lots of water and sunshine and she’s doing marvellously, more pics next week, but for now here’s a petal from each of my Bloomies.
Love the delicate petals against the rough bark.
