Blossom

 
I have just flipped the calendar over to March. We are technically in Autumn now so I guess it is ironic to share this Spring image at this time. I have been working on a little series of Spring blossom illustrations that I started in the Spring last year when I was admiring the little blossom tree in our back garden. Spring is always a season filled with warmth, colour and hope. I love the idea of colour emerging out of the greyness of Winter and I also like to use the image as a metaphor to remind us that even in the difficult times and during the coldest months, we can be comforted by the knowledge that Spring always comes.
It also reminds me of all the wonderful Springs I experienced in Japan where the cherry blossoms are magnificent. For those in the Northern hemisphere, not long to go now - flowers will soon be blooming.
