Pink

There's something, isn't there, about the pink chestnut blossoms? They have a sweet, satisfying ice-cream beauty on the tree, especially a really big tree (giant strawberry sundae?). But carpeting the ground, there's something raw, lightly bloody, in the colour and texture; in each tiny form, something creature-like.

Shadows and fallen blossoms. Wonderful.

Something beautifully melancholy about these pictures, Jean. Hope all's going well with you...

Love how the hint of pink comes around in between dark shadows and grey

Anne, thanks. I love your recent bird photos.

Peter, well, you know: it's so hard, I'm here, I'm doing fine, it's so hard... and I'm so grateful for the buddhist teaching that these are not in contradiction!

Omstreifer, I'm delighted to discover your blog. I love your 2012 bibliography and I'll be back to read more.
