Hiding in plain sight or standing tall in the crowd, which blossom are you?

Apple blossoms, Zurich, 2022
Poppies, ink and vermillion color on Japanese paper, 2021

I was looking for a photo to match with these poppies, but it will be a while yet before they come back. They were still blooming in mid November at the time of my exhibition.

While hiking around Zurich on the Easter weekend I came across a blooming apple tree (swipe). Nearly all early blossoms looked alike. It was hard to find the spots with one or two fully open flowers. How very different from the single, easily visible thin stalk flowers they are.

Which type of flowers do you like best, and what do they say about you?

Thank your for reading another zen Monday.

Every Monday is zen Monday. Always a weekly dose of Japanese ink painting coupled with one photograph from my archives.
