Spring had barely come
with all it's blossomy glory
outside my garden fence
my favourite ornamental blossom tree, Malus floribunda.
At duk, I stand engulfed by it's scent and blossoms
wisteria coming into bloom,
again the heady scent was almost too much at times
all this delicate wonder was destroyed by two hot, hot days
as summer struck us in the face in mid spring,
complete with a bushfire close by
as a consolation prize,
this splendid, huge bloom opened among the faded
splendour of the wisteria.
No complaints, the consolation prize was a real beauty!
