viola, catkins, scent

Posted by Picasa
The heart of a viola.

The catkins of silver birch. Green rain.

The cherry tree half way up Mount Sion billows out in clouds of blossom. The scent. The scent: I try and fail to photograph the scent.

Lovely poetic post today. The heart of the viola is especially beautiful.

Beautiful photo! Spare words capturing so much of spring!

Ah, the failure of smell-o-vision.

Yes, the non-invention of the smell-camera is always a sadness...

Thanks everyone. May be last year's Spring was a write-off, but this one seems to be just right - April showers and all. And no nasy frosts to nip precocious blossoms.
