One becomes two

When I posted The Winds of Change, a few months ago for a photo tag, several of you asked to see a photograph of the tree when it was in blossom. So here you are and as you will see it is not one tree but two!

The tree with the white blossom comes into flower about two weeks before the tree with the pink blossom and by the time the tree with the pink blossom is in flower the white blossom tree has finished flowering. I took these photographs a couple of weeks ago and I apologise for the quality of them. I cannot try to improve on them for another 50 weeks as at the moment most of the blossom is lying on our patio!

Hazy daze update

This last week has been more difficult than the previous week. When I telephoned the home in desparation, after Easter, the only room that they could offer me was in the nursing home on the same site as the residential home. So for the first week my mother was in the nursing home. Then a week ago now, they moved her into the residential home. This made her more confused then ever and very angry. She thought that she was in an hotel, when she was in the nursing home. Now she realises that she is not in an hotel, but is not sure where she is.

Later today we are going away for a few days - back in a week's time.

Lovely flowering cherries, both pink & white!

Sorry to hear that your mother has been upset by the move. She will be OK, you know. There's no easy way to transfer her really.

Hope the stay away will provide you with a restful break.

How confusing for your Mum, I hope she settles in.

Enjoy your break.

A well-deserved break - I hope you don't mind me saying that. You've really been through it.

I wish we had a blossom tree

have a good break. Wow, just when you think you have it figured out, something new comes up, doesn't it. I hope your Mom gets settled in soon.

Love the pictures of the trees, but not the story about your mom. I trust she'll settle in presently, or in due course.

Hope you have a nice break. See you when you get back.

You deserve to give yourself a good break, after your recent trials and tribulations! Enjoy it!

The blossom trees look lovely - a pity it is for such a short period but then I suppose we wouldn't appreciate them so much.

Have a good break and hope your Mum is OK when you return. A x

I'm sure your Mum will soon settle

Thank you all for your good wishes.

My mother now seems to be settling into the residential home and we had a good break.
