First Spring Apple Blossoms

In spite of all the wind and cool weather and flickers of sunlight, apple blossom has managed to struggle through in Dromana.
This photo was taken in a segment of afternoon sunlight with hints of shadows.

Burst of sweet beauty
Apple blossom enchantment
Burst of innocence

Hope some better spring weather is coming your way.

Your spring so far sounds like ours last April and May -- well, actually up until about three weeks ago!! Hope you get better weather quicker than we did and more of it! Gorgeous capture and such an exquisite blossom and color and, of course, the perfect words as well! Have a great day, Gemma!

Beautiful Spring blossoms, like you we have been experiencing cold and rainy weather.

Lets hope it warms up soon for us all.

Innocense indeed. Nature doesn't pay attention to our banter, does it? Beautiful shadows on a beautiful blossom. I always am intrigued by the opposite seasons of our hemispheres. Some day, I would love to experience a never ending summer and winter by traveling around the globe. As usual, very nice photo and wonderful haiku.

Yup it's a sure fire sign that Spring has sprung when the apple blossoms appear. There's a garden not far from me that has a huge blossom tree right in the middle, the rest of the garden is barren, for the rest of the year it looks pretty desolate and then for a few weeks in Spring it comes alive with this one tree.
