I have been absent from How does your garden grow? again. This has been the longest winter ever! I haven’t felt particularly inspired by the outdoors. Then, suddenly, it was as if Spring had sprung overnight.
Blossom appeared. Everywhere. It is so beautiful, so refreshing, such a relief!
I cannot begin to tell you how much I needed to see leaves on the trees, blossom bursting from buds, flowers blooming; to see colour and sunshine.
The sight of pretty blossom; from white, to the palest of pink, to red and gold; makes me smile and warms my heart after this long, cold winter.
And, although the blossom is already fading; a carpet of petals will soon litter the pavements; it is a sign of the summer to come, and I am looking forward.
