and spring begins!
the almond tree has begun to bloom, fuller than ever before; akin to the cherry blossom. the camellia too is studded with the precisely petalled flowers of rich pink it is known for. the garden is alive! a magic not witnesses on those wet, cloud blanketed days; the unpredictable dance of the shadows. every inch of space susceptible to a fleeting change. a new perspective with every passing bundle of clouds, or the flex of a branch in the wind. and then the sun is hidden; silence, stillness. only for the reprieve to be broken by a chink in the marbled plate of cloud and movement continues. a new crevice will be ignited, or the light will find a hole in the foliage and exalt a new section of grass with untempered brilliance. spring returns.
