The blossom in our garden has been given a hard time by the elements in the last week. There’s been no significant let-up in the return to much colder conditions and although in our area April showers have been few, overnight frosts, chilly winds and low temperatures have been the order of the day, and the forecast for the rest of this week is for more of the same.
All is not entirely gloomy. There have been bursts of sunshine, and when one arrives, I have hurried outside to make the best of the window of sunlight.
Three images today of the blossom in our garden that has, despite the adverse conditions, managed to flourish
First, ornamental Cherry – always a showy large-petalled blossom.
