Pablo Neruda had written that one can cut all the flowers, but he cannot keep the spring from coming. For blogging, please allow me to paraphrase it; no matter how many flower pics we add on our blog, we cannot bring the spring earlier.
One of the things I believe is difficult to do nowadays is to define how many clothes and what kind of clothes we need in our closet.The common thing I hear from my friends is that despite the full of clothes closets, they have nothing to wear. I would call it as the syndrome of the collector. We can’t leave the clothes that no longer fit us, literally and metaphorically, but also we can’t stop buying new. It is remarkable to read that we now own 120 clothes when in the decade of 1930 women had in average 36 clothes. I would say that my closet surely has 100 clothes or more and I usually wear less than 50 of them.
Pink is one of the hot colors of this season. The last days I find it almost everywhere; in clothes, inspirational boards, designs, home decoration and photography contests.
|Spring Plum Cherry Blossoms by Papanikolaou Joanna on 500px|
After noticing the differences between the trees I photographed and searching about their species, the beauty of plum tree blossoms had made great impression on me. There are plum trees that have white flowers with orange stamens and cherry plum blossoms that are pinky with red stamens. Both are gorgeous with beautiful fragrance !!! All the links and articles of this Sunday’s SeVeN is about tree blossoms. Especially the first one will help you distinguish cherry from plum flowers.
