bloom where you are planted

  1. Cherry blossoms coat the streets and pile up like snow drifts. The cars in my neighbourhood look like they've been to a wedding and have been covered in confetti
  2. It's been a cool spring and the lilacs are just blooming now. I take time on a neighbourhood ramble to rediscover their almost-too-sweet old fashioned fragrance
  3. A pale pink clematis drapes over the veranda of a bright blue house
