Tis the season of blooms! Look at this plum tree blosoms....Aren't they gorgeous! They are all potential fruit plums, but it all depend on whether the working bee set the flowers into fruits by pollination.
Right now, my most favourite place to sit in the garden, whenever possible, is under our big cherry tree! It's also in full bloom and what I love the most is the buzzing noise of hundreds of bees gathering nectar from flower to flower! To me, the sound and presence of bees are magical! I love bees!
Bees are friends. Hard working friends who are only interested in blosoms like this ones.
I just can't help writing and photographing this moment in our garden..My wish is to share with you the excitement and joy that we get out from the simple beauty of nature.
I collaged these photos of the tulips which was taken just a few minutes interval of each other. Every morning, they unfold their blooms slowly and by late afternoon, they do the reverse action of closing up once again....I find this fascinating indeed!
One favourite British dessert is the use of rhubard leave stem (not the leaves as it's poisonous)...I planted this rhubard from seeds given by my MIL. In UK, we have rhubard in our garden too and they just come up year after year without any care given to it.
I suppose, we have slightly different climate condition here that this rhubard started bolting...it's going to bloom to produce seeds. Now, this is strange phenomenon to me... but I found out that it is because the plant is STRESSED!! Oh! poor plant!... and my husband won't have rhubard pie this year too!! Well, I'll try again next year!

Life is full of surprises...lots of learning to do along the way....sometimes it's overwhelming, but I'm determined to just focus on the joy of simple things in life... you do the same, and have a blessed day:)
