The party's over!

Mr Gaucho has said more than once in the last two or three weeks that the cherry blossom seems to have been better than usual.  I think he could be right, but sadly, now, the trees in the garden are coming into leaf, and the blossom is fluttering to the ground like confetti.  We have a carpet of petals;  all that white loveliness is fading and giving way to fresh green leaves.

  1. Spring blossom is beautiful to see and a real lift to the spirits after a long, wet and cold winter. A pity it lasts such a short time, but thankfully it heralds the appearance of more beautiful flowers.
