Blossom From Bedroom Window

This was a cool day of intermittent bright sunshine and showers on which there must have been a rainbow somewhere.

I didn’t go out to investigate, but Jackie took all except the first of her

blossom pictures from the bedroom window, including one from the front garden featuring the tall Amanogawa cherry.

Obviously my aim at an average of 50 pages of “Kristin Lavransdatter” has gone out of the window lately, however I did manage 59 today.

This evening we all dined on another of Jackie’s wholesome cottage pie meals. My slightly larger portion was taken in the same manner as yesterday.


  1. Very pretty; and didn’t you do well!
    My lunch was special today – we had a quite delicious salmon croute with a mixed salad , followed by posset and fresh fruit. Our long-standing (71 years!) friends: mother and daughters are the best cooks!

  2. The crabapple closeup is delightful! “There must have been a rainbow somewhere” shows a sense of hope and imagination. I hope you feel all better soon.

  3. Beautiful pictures full of Nature’s bounty. I like the phrase ‘boredom window’. Hope you are doing well Derrick.

  4. Derrick, I’m just catching up. I’m sorry to hear about the cold, but I remain hopeful it will pass in time for your cataract surgery. I took my friend Mary for the same surgery last month. It’s extraordinary how quickly the eye heals and how well you can see once you heal. Fingers crossed. Your garden looks lovely. I’m glad Jackie continues to provide delicious meals and that you can share in photographic duties. I’m sending healing vibes across the sea.

  5. Beautiful photos, Jackie! They bring the joy! 🙂
    Derrick, so glad you got some reading time! Hope you are well soon!
    (((HUGS))) to all at your home… ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

  6. You seem to be feeling better, Derrick. In addition to Jackie being a culinary goddess, she is also an excellent photographer.
