Flower viewing

Today was a day for looking in wonder
at the hundreds of white blossoms
against the beautiful blue sky.

In Japan there's a word for it

If you would like to help the children of Japan
who have lost their homes and family in
the earthquake and tsunami
Save the Children have set up an emergency appeal
please make a donation, however small

  1. I see you too are having a Blackthorn Winter, with the flowers like snow along the hedges. Very beautiful here, and all the tiny leaves unwrapping. Brimstones, Peacocks and Commas fluttering hopefully.

  2. Hi Wendy - I think your hedges are ahead of ours - the Blackthorn buds have yet to break (these are wild Cherry Plums)

    Hi OBCS - the aftermath of the Japan earthquake and tsunami are almost too much to take in - so waht must it be like for children who have lost everything?

  4. I've been standing under our wild cherry for a few days, inhaling the wonderful scent, listening to the grazing bees and watching the petals falling like snow around me. Heavenly - and makes me realise how lucky I am.
