Down to earth

Dragon's blood plum blossom with Galileo cocking his leg 2

An earthy moment

The sun was setting today when I went out to photograph the fairy-tale blossom of almond, apricot, nectarine, peach and plum.


The picture shows the dragon’s blood plum.

Lost in contemplation of its beautifully arching boughs along which flowers are opening like a tide of foam, I suddenly realised Galileo had entered the shot.

Fruit tree trunks – in this case a fig tree sucker – serve only one purpose as far as he’s concerned.

Taylor, further on, is more decorous on this occasion.
