butterflies, apple blossoms and forget-me-nots

Blossoms everywhere. I can feel the scent of the bird cherry blossoms through my open window as I write. Above is Apple blossom buds just on the verge to break – they  will probably be in full bloom tomorrow. This is an amazing, overwhelming time.

Wherever one looks there is beauty to see and as long as one takes a moment to look around and feel the scent it is hard not to be smitten by prosperity. Everything is yet delicate and soft. The leaves are still soft and light green and have yet to darken and mature. The same miracle every year. May is fantastic.

    May *is* fantastic. And just a few months ago it was covered in snow – it has certainly made up for *that*.
