When I opened the curtains this morning I was greeted not only by another beautiful day, but by my blossoming plum trees! They are the first of the fruit trees to blossom each year, but each time I manage to be surprised by how the blossom just 'sneaks in'. One day there's just bare branches, the next...boom...(OK I just wanted to use that word, it means 'tree' in Dutch) covered in blossom.

Wouldn't these be lovely to make in miniature...maybe just one branch in a vase, oriental style. Those tiny stamens with little yellow balls of pollen would be a challenge. Too bad you wouldn't be able to get the fragrance on the miniature ones, it really is divine.

Have a lovely Easter weekend everyone!
