Foxglove Moments

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


There comes a brief moment each spring,
lasting little more than a week,

when the last of the flowering plums
overlap
with the first of the flowering cherries,

and this hillside becomes awash in pinks and whites.

A mystical conjunction and combining of blossoms.

Beauty in transit.
