Spring has sprung!!!

I don’t know about you but I just love this time of the year. The trees are magnificent, the bushes are bulging with flowers showing off the most amazing & breathtaking colours, but the trees that get me that make me smile with absolute joy whenever I see them are the blossom trees. I am not sure of all their individual names, but what I do know is they are something to die for as you watch them bloom.

Where I live, the street at the top of ‘the establishment ‘ has got a row of blossom trees & each time we are brought back from an activity on the bus or I come back with one of my friends or family I have the sheer delight of watching them change, the blossoms have come out more & I always comment out loud ‘hey everybody take a look at those magnificent blossom trees’ (I’m sure I’m starting to sound like a cracked record but I just can’t help it, they are just so beautiful!). I will include a photo below of the row of them in the street so you can get some idea of what I’m talking about, but I’m still not convinced the iPhoto comes close to doing it any justice, but its worth a go.

There is also a beautiful rosé garden down the bottom of ‘the establishment’ that Tash the therapy dog & I often go for nice walks. I have been watching the rosé bushes start to develop since they have been pruned right back, but they are not at the flowering stage yet, I can’t wait until they are so I can take some photos & show them off to you all. What is down there that has caught my eye over the last few days is a little baby blossom tree & it is producing the most unbelievable buds & I couldn’t keep on walking past without capturing another picture. I just smile each time I walk past & am reminded once again that even though there is so much hardship & battles in life we have been surrounded by little reminders like blossom trees & different seasons that bring us so much pleasure. Sometimes, we need a little jolt every now & again to remind us of these little pleasures but I’m sure once reminded it doesn’t take long for that face to light up again!

Thank God Spring has sprung!!!

The baby blossom tree!

Row of trees in street!

Some blossoms close up!

  1. Hi Jenni
    Just love reading your Blog it keeps me calm and I also get a great laugh. Love the blossoms too. I have created havoc in my dining room – I pulled out all my watercolour paper and paint and figured that if it was out then I could practise every opportunity I get. It is working as yesterday I made a couple of cards and I will try to now, with your inspiration, paint a blossom.
    Lots of love,

  2. Jen, the trees look magnificent. My ornamental pear trees have had the odd blossom on them, but otherwise they’ve pretty much gone straight into leaf. I don’t think our winter was cold enough? But I’m enjoying watching them take shape, nonetheless!
