Tree blossom

In Spring the trees blossom with a cascade of colours and smells. It’s a delightful time! And especially as everywhere you look there are the signs of new life, and with it new hope.
No matter how dark the path we tread or how deep the river we cross, we will get to another place. What we find when we arrive does depend somewhat on us and the choices we make. I can choose to wallow in a ‘slough of despond’ or I can choose to look for whatever may provide encouragement and hope.
These particular blossoms only last a day or two… yet they have a beautiful fragrance and are attractive to the birds who come and feed on the nectar. They gave me joy just to see them and to see the birds enjoying them.
