A POEM OF DAY - ORANGE BLOSSOM




This was one of the last photographs I took before being isolated at home as the Spanish government ordered the population to stay in their homes. Unlike other countries we are not allowed out for walks or exercise and with an existing health condition I have not been out of my front door for over three weeks. The orange blossom will be fading now but at its peak the exquisite, sweet perfume from the fields of orange trees wafts over the whole village. I like the idea of people isolated in their homes being united by the scent of blossom as it permeates the village in a reminder that growth, nature, life continues outside our doors.
