so, spring was nice, for those couple of days the other week! no really, i thoroughly enjoyed it.
for a brief window of time, i was able to enjoy the plum blossom in the evening sunlight
and marvel at the ridiculously gorgeous cherry blossom
appreciate the white of the plum blossom against the blue of a virtually cloudless sky
and the delicate prettyfulness of new blossoms blossoming in the warm weather
…thank goodness i took a few pictures to remember it by!
farewell spring, you were lovely while you lasted.
up next: second winter!
now please excuse me while i go dig my gloves and scarf and thermal socks back out of storage.
i love this time of year. lighter evenings, warmer sunshine (sometimes!) and nature starting to wake up.
i’ve enjoyed seeing the buds on the silver birch outside my window getting big and fat and green
until they suddenly burst open
all new and green and fresh!
my favourite favourite of course though…
is my beloved cherry blossom. i adore the deep hot pink of those buds, right before they flower
yeah, you can probably look forward to another 7984372346 photos of cherry blossom in days to come.
ooh and last but not least…
my other old favourite, the goldflame. flaming goldily, like it does.
i seriously dig those colours.
spring is very definitely sproinging at last and i’m enjoying watching it get underway!
a brief catchup:
spring is here!
daffodils! sunshine! gardening is possible!
picnic time with friends! (but let’s focus on that pavlova.)
interrupted by a lovely pair o’ melons <3
back to that pavolva! mmm. get in my face.
