As a child in spring, for a brief couple of weeks the streets around our house were transformed with a froth of cherry blossom.  Running underneath them I was immersed in soft pink light and if the branches hung low enough I could return home with handfuls of blossom.  The tulips were the original focus of this picture, exotic before a row of  flaxes in rich colours of plum, purple and cerise.  Somehow the cherry tree has taken over though; standing tall in the background its petals are blowing over the whole picture.
