Last night, homeward bound from my allotment plot, I noticed the first blossom on the old damson tree. Only a few flowers were fully open, and then I saw this one had a visitor. A delicious spring foraging for ant-kind. I watched it for several minutes, wondering if I’d been missing something not thinking to lick the odd bit of fruit blossom. Anyway, it made me feel very happy – this scene, and that thought.
At the risk of bursting onto song, this April Becky wants us to show her all things bright and beautiful. It’s time to celebrate whatever gives our spirits a lift, or makes us laugh, or catches our eye. You can post something each day, or now and then when any kind of brightness strikes. The only rule: the image must be SQUARE.

I’m bursting into song, Tish 🙂 🙂 Well, it’s April, isn’t it?
With a tra-lal-laa and hey nonny no! Happy days, Jo.
Blossom of fruit trees is such a welcome sight, I think your neighbours might worry though if they spot you licking it all!
They might just worry, Becky. You’re right 🙂
Great capture of an ant pollinator. I think we are going to get somewhat giddy this month with all this cheerfulness 😁
I like that image, Jude: giddy with cheerfulness. More power to our brightness 🙂
I’m always happy when that ant isn’t one of several million invading my kitchen. So far, so good, but it’s still early. We are getting mosquitoes, however and probably ticks. And the woodpeckers are all over the trees, so it’s spring. Flowers would be nice. Many, many more flowers.
I downloaded Open Live Writer and THANK YOU. Really. THANK YOU.
I do hope it works out for you. I find it invaluable – mostly because I’m pretty much in charge of what I do there!!! Wishing you flowers, but no ants.
