Fruit blossoms

The orchard smells heavenly at present and looks like something out of a fairy tale. 

Petals float on the breeze and bees and butterflies are flittering around by the dozen.  We have beautiful sunshine and a light warm breeze ruffling the fresh new grass.

The breeze is swirling petals through the air.  I told my neighbour it was the snow of spring. 

Actually felt up to a slow walk today.  We walked down to the river, la Dive, and then back up to the house.  Not very far normally, but exhausting for me at present.  Still a long way to go before I am well again.  It was bliss to be outside in the fresh air and spring sunshine though.

Of course Sophie had to walk part way with us.  She posed beautifully in the orchard for a few photos.


  1. Sounds like a lovely day. Hope you're feeling better! If you're not up and about, who will give Sophie her supervised walks? ;)

  2. Exactly! She is quite put out that we don't have our daily

    Although I do get the feeling that she supervises me, not the other way round.

    Slowly recovering thanks. The sunshine helps. Makes everything seem ok when it is so sunny and beautiful.
