Fairy Friday and Cherry Blossoms
We have been so fortunate, weather-wise, in the past couple of weeks here in the Bay Area. The temperatures have been in the high sixties and seventies and in some places even the low 80's. The sun is out but, there is a nip in the air. We will be having rain next week though. Sigh. I am ready for warmer weather. I know when spring is coming because the cherry blossoms start to bloom. A few days ago you could only see tiny little pink tips. Now, most of the trees are in full bloom and washes of pinky-white blossoms dot neigborhoods and parks. I like what I call a "Spring Snow". That's when a spring breeze will make the petals swirl in the air and a gentle "snow" of pink falls around you. It's truly magic and very fairy like when this happens.
Maybe if I can capture a photo of a Spring Snow I can catch a glimpse of this little fairy fluttering about amongst the petals. You know faires though, they are shy and secretive and have to be in the right mood to let you see them...maybe I'll get lucky, I can only hope.
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
Nettle Pepperglow She plays tricks on small children and old folk. She lives in brambles and blackberry bushes. She can only be seen in the light of a full moon. She wears purple and green like berries and leaves and has autumnal brown wings, like a butterfly. Get your own fairy name from the fairy name generator!
