Gil's Cherries


SPRING PLEASURES

I know I've shown this before, but perhaps not quite like this. We've got a particularly good bloom this year as we've had no damaging rain and barely even a gust of wind.

While the snow matted down the narcissus it had no negative effect on anything else here.

And so the flowers are perfection!

I thought, wait a minute, he can't possibly be going to reveal Gill's cherries! :-)
Ahahah, cherry blossom, the promise of fruits to come. I am envious.

Hello:
Cherry blossom is such a marvellous sight and is absolutely sublime when viewed against an azure blue sky. Gil's cherries look so pretty and are grown at their best, we think, in a semi-casual orchard arrangement such as this.

In our gardening days on the rare occasion in spring when sun and a clear blue sky would grace our Herefordshire garden, we would lie under our 'Great White Cherry' and be entranced by the froth of snowy white blossoms as they sailed against a sea of blue.

Just drove past many cherry orchards in the Gilroy CA area this past week...the blooms were stunningon on the repeated trees...for a moment, I forgot about the future cherries.

What a sublime axis!

The photographs and the Hattatts in Herefordshire remind me of the delight of a light breeze, to let the blossom fragments fall upon the face. A delicious space, this grove just now.

An exquisite setting for these beautiful trees. I have a special love for fruit trees at all times of the year. Here are the flowering trees, set in a grass alley edged by walls and hedges and overlooking the formal garden, altogether a masterpiece.

Di, We all have cherries soor or later, don't be envious!

I would lie forever with you, mutually entranced, under the great white cherry in the sky!

Paul Gervais de Bédée said...

It's true, the blossoms would be enough, but then there even the fruit!

Paul Gervais de Bédée said...

The axis of good, isn't it?!

Paul Gervais de Bédée said...

And the scent, Laurent, you with the "nose" for such things!

And it's a road to somewhere mythical!

It looks like a most idyllic and rather secret place.
