Spring Blooms

I can never remember the names of flowers and trees and today is no exception. I captured this image almost a month ago after Jacinta spotted this beautiful display of nature.

We are to be married today, it’s all hectic around here but our prayers have been answered and the rain is clearing off. I’m looking forward to saying “I do” later and making Jacinta my beautiful wife!
Slightly later… we got a mention on the radio when Ian Dempsey read out my text. A pity he fluffed up my surname but their text machine must have mangled it somehow! Jacinta reminded me that it’s a cherry blossom in the photo above!

    Wow. Good for you and good luck! And yep, cherry is the most beautiful blossom. We had a pink cherry tree in the front garden of the house where I grew up – fond memories.

    […] Good luck to big bro Donncha who is getting married to Jacinta today.  Being best man has taken on new responsibilities, as well as minding the rings, giving a short but witty speech, and paying everybody (to laugh) now there is almost an obligatory blog post to write.  The wonders of modern communication eh?   […]
