Colour rush





















It wasn't a blue day, but I feasted on colours before my breakfast today.

I was running through the cherry trees as the blackbirds flicked and picked at the tree litter just inches from my feet. Far easier to do those repetitions when the colours are as wonderful as this and when night rain has made every flower scent the air.

Some of the first bluebells -
















Tulips like a roar of red.





















And then, later, when I went to check on my allotment, the apple blossom was in full glory. Hard not to just abandon the chores and sit there gazing at it. So, it looks like we'll have a good crop of Bramley apples this year. Can't wait for the crumble!
