blossoms on blackcurrant changing to young fruit


raindrops a mirror
when blossoms turn to fruit
a pheasant sings

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words dear Laurie 💜 I decided to keep the earlier photographs and haiku aside for a sequence once the blackcurrant was ripe for harvest as it is such an amazing process to witness 🙂💖 xxx
