Springtime reminds me of a stage production. Maybe a play; maybe a vaudeville or an operetta. The characters are larger than life; the decorations have only the brightest colours, and the songs are only of the greatest love imaginable. This overflowing beauty makes you want to jump on the stage and take part in the proceedings.
I think springtime gives us the opportunity to do something like that.
I also realized that I love the hear the sound of magnolia flowers falling down. The process of this little piece of flora detaching and falling into the grass can be heard from the beginning to the end. You can close your eyes and still hear the life of this tree. Cherry trees, in the meantime, lose their petals quietly, and they are only to be observed.
I hope you enjoyed this little stroll around the gardens.
