I've been waiting and watching for weeks as ole plummy has been promising to burst forth with clouds of white loveliness and today I am wondering it I can call it peak blossoming time. Last Saturday I found the first open bloom and all week drawing back the curtain has revealed soft sunrises behind an ever increasing curtain of flowers. Possibly the height of blossomyness was yesterday as a few petals started to fall by the evening but there are still so many buds waiting to open so maybe today we will reach the moment of maximum fullness. Every year I am overjoyed by this wonder right outside my bedroom window. I just want to make myself a nest right in the middle of all that prettiness.

So cool watching them bloom right in front of you!

There is a row of blossoming trees up near our shops, and if the wind is blowing when you walk along there, it is almost like it is snowing!

So very pretty! We aren't there yet...crocuses just came up (and it is currently snowing), but I can enjoy yours until mine decide it's time!
