Apple blossom in miniature

White montbresia inflorescence

White montbretia inflorescence

When the white montbretia at the front of the house looked like it was taking over the flowerbed, I was dismayed.

I thought it was boring, colourless and much less attractive than the grape hyacinths it was displacing.

Anyway last summer’s drought pinned it back, but a couple of days ago I noticed it was just creeping into flower.

I had a close-up lens on my camera at the time so I photographed it – and it’s so pretty! Like tiny sprigs of fruit blossom complete with pink-and-yellow stamens.

It’s a reminder of what there is to look forward to in a month or so’s time.
