The tender times of May

Weeping Cherry (Prunus pendula)

It's May, the time for the tender and the new. Weeks' old calves are walking beside their mothers and experiencing the lushness of meadow grass for the first time, and the ethereal and ephemeral blossoms of trees such as this Weeping Cherry, with its graceful habit, have transformed the landscape into a fairy land.

Tender, green leaves emerging on the trees just beyond this Weeping Cherry signal that we are moving into mid spring now, when everything seems to be growing and glowing.
