a profusion of blossoms
we have a lot of apple trees here in the north. and it is apple blossom season! a glorious riot of every shade of pink–from the palest blush to the deepest merlot. this week, and it will only last a week, is perhaps my favorite micro-season of the year: apple blossoms, ferns, lilacs, tiny yellow-green leaves. it’s all happening right now. and it is a promise of six months of fine weather ahead. and on top of it all, tomorrow is my birthday. 58, since I know you will be curious :-) what a fine time of year!
