What is it about blossom? Every year I forget how great it is. I’m busy gushing over daffodils and snowdrops, and then I open my front door and get the biggest surprise – nature has thrown a bag of confetti over everything.
It starts with a small smattering of blossom, and before you know it tree after tree is dressed up like a pom-pom.
It’s the best kind of surprise. The kind of surprise that fills you with joy, quickens your step and lightens your heart.
Blossom is generous. You don’t have to go searching for it. It’s there on every street corner or busy road. It turns the dreariest, prickliest roadside tree or hedge into a sugary confection.
It feels a little warmer, and the sweet scent of blossom fills the air. The sky takes on that bright, intense blue. You might even shrug off your coat in the afternoon.
It’s all the more special because you know it’s fleeting.
But don’t worry. We haven’t even reached peak-blossom yet! There’s weeks and weeks of it left to come. What we’ve got now is just the warm up. Soon enough it’ll be even bigger, better and fluffier!
