Fleeting Petal Power

SPRING PETALS have a powerful allure when the day is dull.

But the shy pink and snowy white flakes are already on the wane.

Dusting blankets of confetti beneath trees ...

they land helter-skelter on the grass and pavement ...

dissolving into puddles of April showers.

  1. Oh, so beautiful. And, of course, I love that you've included a Puddle.
    Not quite spring here yet, but it looks like it might happen soon.
    Got back today, jet-lagged and exhausted, but Dick found the energy to take Lindy for a nice long walk, and now I hear her snoring from three rooms away!
    Luv, K

  2. I read this post last night, but was too tired after our three-day trip to formulate a comment. Today, I spent several hours walking in Stanley Park. It was a beautiful day, and the wind was blowing petals all around. I kept thinking of your beautiful photos, and especially of your reference to "dusting blankets of confetti." I've enjoyed your "food for thought" observations as many blossoms begin to pass their prime. Thanks, Penelope.

  3. We seem to share the same kind of scenes created by the fallen cherry petals. Cherry blossoms please us from the budding to dying. In Nara Park, deer eat fallen petals.

  4. It is like a blanket of flowers! Beautiful captures.

  5. Oh such beautiful blossoms!
