Though we’re in the midst of spring, I’m feeling very aware of life and death as turns of the same wheel. The blossoms that have been so prolific on our fruit trees are falling; the petals turning brown on the ground. What’s left behind are the tiny fragile fruit-buds which offer the hope of a harvest to come. But caught in this moment between flower and fruit, the over-riding impression is of decay.
Editing this image of wilting flowers; I realise that I feel a kind of melancholy. I’m looking forward to the fruit, but missing the beauty of the flowers.
