Gorgeous - I've been taking photos of blackthorn and hawthorn here. Too early for the hawthorn but it doesn't appear to have noticed.

Oh, that's beautiful Alexa. Both the blossom and the words.


Oh, so lovely, photo and words. The blackthorn has been the subject of my photography lately too.

Ahhhhh! Such sweet words. i'm feeling the full joy of Spring now :) Pxx


What a gorgeous shot. The little balls look like confetti sprinkled across the flowers. We have had a lot of rain lately. I keep reminding myself "April showers bring May flowers" and I can hardly wait for Spring!


I'm very taken with the thought of birdsong with no voices. It sounds delightful

A charming poem Alexa - beautiful photo too


Your words, few though they were, successfully brought your viewers into the moment you shared. The idea of birdsong with voices is very appealing.
