Looking for the Rainbow

Although it has been really tough to find many positives with the long wet summer last year & the extended cold winter, I finally found the rainbow when I walked the boys to school this morning. Because of the delayed start to the blossom, blackthorn is bursting at the same time as its leaves, softening the stark white blooms in the hedgerows. Hawthorn is following closer behind than usual, so they may even cross over, filling the boundaries with blooms.
And for the first time in over 10 years, the magnolia flowers are perfect delicate white and pink goblets: not scarred and scorched around the edges from an evening kiss of frost.
