the call to spring

Pink and white petals now gather in drifts at the side of the road as a sort of spring snow. Eager to welcome the warmer days, the cherry blossoms covered the trees in clusters of unusual abundance weighing down the laden branches, sometimes becoming the only clouds to an unblemished blue sky. Beneath them and all around the yellow narcissus call into season the leaves on the trees. An April visit to Burtown House did not disappoint. The white snowdrops that covered the same ground in February were completely replaced with thousands of yellow and white narcissus and other spring flowers.
