It is such a joy to see blossom starting to appear. There is blackthorn in the hedgerows, and in gardens cherry trees are starting to bloom. I have been out scrumping for blossom, picking a few twigs that overhang a wall and a couple more from trees that adorn a village green. I love the delicacy and sculptural simplicity that twigs of blossom bring to a mantelpiece – a breath of fresh air to a Winter-weary home.

    I have pussy willow, but the blackthorn isn’t out yet … the hedgerows here are thick with it here, you can’t miss it once it starts to flower.

    Your blossom is so delicately pretty 🙂

    Completely divine. Not a hint of blossom around these parts yet. Might hunt for some pussy willow for my Easter tree.

    That blossom is gorgeous. The contrast of pinks against the brown-grey of the branches is just beautiful, and I love the glass bottle you’ve used.
