Shivering beauty

We’ve had snow, hail and ice in May.

But that doesn’t stop the fruit trees from blossoming.

Down at the churchyard, the trees are

Like fireworks and petals

Lie on the ground like snow.

Ruby doesn’t mind …

She always has time to stop and admire the flowers.

For more petalled beauty, please go to: Our World Tuesday.

  1. Glorious photographs, Fiona! The color you captured is exquisite. As you know, pink is one of my favorite colors 🙂

    Wow, can’t believe you had hail and ice this month!?! We’ve had nothing but rain, heat, and high humidity. I can only imagine how this summer is going to be 😦

    Love the picture of Ruby!

    Have a great week, my friend!

  2. It’s beginning to look positively Spring-like there, even if the temperatures are not as warm as we’d like. It’s been similar here with occasional showers of hail and chilly winds.

  3. Nature never ceases to amaze me, because whatever the weather nature wins through.
    Love the blossom trees.

    Happy May Wishes.

    All the best Jan

  4. That is very beautiful. There’s not a lot blooming at my elevation yet – we’re supposed to get snow and go well below freezing again this week!
