Like paper flowers

From a magician’s hands,

First blossoms emerge.

For Carpe Diem: Cherry blossoms

Our ornamental cherries aren’t out yet, unlike Chevrefeuille’s. We’ve hidden Easter eggs wrapped in pink foil among the blossoms in the past but maybe Easter is earlier this year. It’s also my daughter’s 12th birthday today – we still have some paper fans and lanterns hanging up from her party and that’s perhaps what got me thinking about paper flowers.
