TODAY'S FLOWERS & I Heart Macro - Almond Blossom Time

Spring has sprung although the calendar does not as yet
say so
the sun rises just after seven, the soil is drying out
the garden needs watering
and the almond blossoms are in full splendour

the blossoms are not as plentiful as usual as we had
a small flowering in autumn and the parrots
have nipped off a lot of buds in the winter

they look so pretty against the sky

their pink reverses show up well against the grass

and aren't they little beauties up close
and personal?

  12. Parrots do have a liking for buds!

    The Cutty Sark is now in dry dock as I think it was in danger of falling apart due to rot - not that long ago it was given a major overhaul and now you can sit underneath it and drink tea!
