The theme this week for The Gallery is delicate.
We moved to our house at the very start of spring this year and watched in wonder as the garden came to life. The old, gnarly apple tree soon began to blossom and it’s branches became covered in the most amazing, soft, pink blossom over the course of just a couple of days.
Then even faster than the blossom appeared it was gone again after a night of heavy rain and driving winds. We went into the garden the following morning to find almost all the blossom had been ripped from the tree and hundreds, if not thousands, of the perfectly formed petals were scattered around the garden, transforming the landscape with their delicate beauty.
