British Blossom: Spring In London
So many trees around me are covered in beautiful little flowers at the moment. I've seen a million incredible pictures of Japanese sakura, but there's so much blossom to see here too. I thought I'd take some pictures out and about of some pieces of this particular nearby wonderland. I tend to find walks and journeys really invigorating generally, because there's always so many lovely, tiny details to take in, but blossom season is so special and perfect. The world is such a beautiful place, and I'm reminded of it all the time. Look at all these cute trees!
I don't really know much about botany, and I find it a bit tricky to learn about (it seems sort of mathematical, somehow - too dense), but it's so fascinating and cool. I'd love to know what different trees and blossom are and why they are structured and coloured the way they are, but I'm like a five year old staring up at them with a melty ice cream. I sort of like it that way though. It's a nice sense of clueless wonder.
I like to fantasise that I was born from a blossom. Maybe I've just watched Thumbelina too many times (let me be your wings and all that). I'm definitely gonna convince my boyfriend to get that triangular fairy prince hair style.
