The most beautiful thing happened the other day. It hailed.
Ok, the hail wasn't the beautiful thing... it's May so that's a bit of a disaster... but the hail knocked all the petals from the cherry trees which made my walk home in the city look like this:
I adore when the pink petals fall from these trees. We had one in the schoolyard when I was a child and my favourite thing to do was to play in the pink snow. It's the reason I have cherry blossoms flowing along my back.
(The last photo above is old, it was taken about 3 days after I had the tattoo completed)
I've been thinking of adding to it, maybe a black satin ribbon flowing through the flowers or adding some branches? We'll see, but walking on that carpet of petals as they were still falling from the trees was magical and has really inspired me to add to my tattoo. Anyone have a sharpie I can borrow?
