Remember last year when I was patiently waiting for to take a picture of my favourite blossom tree outside the flat and before it came into blossom I was rudely interrupted from carrying out my picture taking task by a pesky heart attack? Well that occurred last year on the Spring Bank holiday. When I came out of hospital the blossom was just about beginning to flower but of course I was not in any fit state for a week or so to go out with my camera so the outcome was I didn’t get my photograph of my favourite in blossom at all, because by the time I felt up to it, the blossom had gone.
This year, what a difference! We are still in April and my favourite tree is now in full bloom! It is always the last blossom to flower compared to the light pink and white blossom, but it is a full month earlier than last year! I am hoping that this is an indication that we are now going to get a much better summer weather wise than last year. So here is my favourite blossom and no, I can’t explain why I prefer this one to the others. I love to see all the Spring blossom, but this colour being a deep pink is just so rich and attractive. I look forward to seeing it in full bloom every year.
