Spring Phenomenon

Although the evenings are getting lighter, I went to Yoga after work today, and ended up standing at the bus stop in the dark. It was a clear sky, and since the bus stop is in a small village there aren't many street lights, so the stars were very clear.

I was trying to pick out the handful of constellations I recognise, but there seemed to be a lot more stars around than usual. It was only after a car drove past and its headlights illuminated the tree above me, that I realised the extra stars were the very first blossoms glowing white in the dark.

I think the tree is of the cherry family and there are no leaves yet, but it always produces a wonderful show of white/pink blossom in the early spring.
