Crabapple blossom

It’s been raining, solidly, for the past two weeks, and I’ve not been able to spend as much time outside. It’s a shame, because being outside at this time of year, you’re confronted with some wonderful tones and textures – as the photo shows. This is what they’ll turn into, eventually. And then perhaps into wine later on in the year.

Bet you are nervous about the winds some of us are putting up with. Hawthorn is a prominent blossom where I live. What’s out may well have been blown away by the time I go out to look. Bins and boxes are currently careering down the road.

We had some really strong winds yesterday, but I’ve not been out to look. I shall head out this afternoon to investigate. Hopefully it was protected for the post part by a fence (the tree is only a few years old, so not all that tall). But yes, some of the local cherry trees have been relieved of much of their blossom…
