Nature Knows

I'm afraid that my camera (photography and gardening) does not do justice to this exquisite apple blossom tree. Nonetheless her beauty is such that she looks good in any light, at any angle, with any fool behind the lens and spade (actually, that would be my husband, and he be no fool). But how short her season! The shortest of any of the flowering plants in our garden. In which case, I can't help marvelling at nature's knowing, in granting but a glimpse of her most exquisite work, lest we (and the bees) become complacent.
