The apple trees that border one side of the green have been especially beautiful this year
And as is so often my way, I leave the well-trodden path and venture through nettles and long grass so that I can meander among them
Apple blossom make me think of weddings.
I'm not sure why, my own wedding took place on a cold day in March and there were few flowers blooming and, it being Lent, none permitted in the church.
But if I ever marry again I would like to do so when the apple trees are heavy with blossom.
And wear a delicate pink-tinged white dress.
And carry a bouquet of apple blossoms.
You see, I have it all planned.
Just in case ....
Meanwhile I wander among the apple trees, happily taking pictures, pausing to admire the branches bearing beautiful blooms and taking time to smell the flowers
Nature is such a wonderful healer
