This week, Lou’s Nature in the Home challenge was to find something pink. At first glance, the garden was distinctly lacking in any pink blooms whatsoever, but I had forgotten about the cherry tree at the front of the house. It is well past its full glory now, petals fading to a pale, washed out shade and dropping whenever there is a gust of wind. I picked a handful of the fluffy blossom and brought it inside. This is a posy that will not last long, but the fallen petals have such an air of sweet disorder that they are charming in themselves. Such delicate confetti.
