Happy Easter

Easter is late this year and the daffodils are gone, but the apple blossom is out. 

This poor little tree has had a hard life.  It grows on a strip of land outside my house.  The lower branches were hacked off so that someone could put up a No Trespassing sign on the trunk.  Then a very large delivery lorry reversed into it and pushed it over. 

I grieved for the little tree.  But there must still be some root attached and lying on the ground it has produced masses of blossom this year.  Triumph over tragedy.  An Easter story.
