color in the wind

Not so long ago we watched through the window as the fences fell over in a storm, one by one, like a pack of cards, all round the property. The high winds today have been pretty much the same, whistling and crashing all day. The fences (restored) are holding up, but it has been a day for tying down the dustbins… and checking other things….

  1. How beautiful Gill, the weather is pretty bad over there I take it. I am blown away by the cherry blossom shot, stunning!


    1. Thanks Holly. Yes the wind has been somewhat breathtaking today and its not going away according to the forecasts!! The cherry blossom snowstorm at the moment comes from the huge overgrown cherry tree nearby. There will be petals like confetti everywhere for days now, as it takes days to empty on the tree, its so full of blossom. Heaven knows how old these venerable survivors are ( near 150 years old)… three of ’em in all…!!
      By the way not much sign of a sunrise or fall here at the moment. Hope you are making gains with the sun near you! 🙂 ❤

      1. I got my pics of the sun, nearly put my eyes out! I will post them eventually, thanks Gill.
        I adore cherry blossoms, don’t have any here!


    1. I think there is more to come. Its still going strong here. The cherry blossom tree is huge and its quite spectacular to be in the midst of one of its flurries! ❤
