Hoary with blossom

I'm still in the wonder of blossom.

'As she stood up to go she looked out at the stretch of garden behind the cottage. The newly turned earth was studded with green plants, against the spring sky a plum tree stood up hoary with blossom. Irene's mother looked at the tree and her blue eyes took on a deeper colour.
'It's a wonder, isn't it?' she said. 'When I go up the garden to shake it, so as the blossom shall set, I could fair worship it.' Elizabeth Cambridge Hostages to fortune
Living in a new area I'm continuously being surprised by new trees giving out their beautiful blossoms. I keep looking at what's happening to the trees after the blossom.  I could fair worship blossom.


  1. It's a lovely time of year - went for a long walk yesterday and noticed all the hedgerow blossom coming out. I worship anything that lifts the spirits like spring blossom. XCathy

  2. Cathy - Yes it truly does lift the spirit. The blossom on our apple tree is itching to bloom any day now I hope & that I truly shall worship.

  3. Oh, I know what you mean! I am loving all the beauty and blossoms of spring. Wonderful quote!

    1. Sunday - I love that blossom is short lived but in so many of our countries. Glad you like this quote.


Ooh how lovely more stripes on the page...
