No idea what these are but they were in the Alpine region of the High Tatra Mountains. As we walked up the trail we’d suddenly be overwhelmed by powerful perfumes and scents. Stunning.
Blossom in puddle
How quickly joy fades
Plum tree starts to bloom
An explosion of bright white
Shame the petals moult
The first wild flowers have begun growing in the garden following Winter. Sadly, no snowdrops or crocuses or daffodils yet, but several little blue and purple ones (along with dandelions, daisies and buttercups).
Today we switched on the water and, thankfully, no pipe or tap had burst during the cold months. Now Spring has started there are many jobs about the house and garden which need attending to – this is always an expensive and labour intensive time.
