No April Fool!

April 1st 2011 - Official at Last!

Snow-white blossom

I could not resist a few more photos of the snowy Blackthorn Blossom that adorns the hedgerows at this time of year, like veils of glistening pearls, scattering petal confetti with each gust of wind.

Purple and Saffron


This February the Crocus displays have been fantastic - carpets of purple silk, embroidered with threads of saffron-gold.
