Okay, so I have a bit of a branch thing. I just wrote about fallen branches as the spoils of winter little more than a month ago and here I go again. I love them any time of year … fresh with new green leaves or dry with withered fall ones, devoid of anything and therefore sculptural or when they are bursting with life. Come to my house. You will see an abundance of branches in vases, tucked into corners — it is actually getting kind of silly. But no excuse is needed for loving spring’s flowering branches. Whether from common fruit trees like apple and cherry, from ornamental pear or crabapple, magnolia or forsythia or the dogwood in my backyard, flowering branches are the best part of spring. I love the full trees when out for a walk or a drive in the country. But I also love them cut and in vases, is that bad? Here are some of my favourites inspiration shots of flowering branches in the home. Hope you enjoy.
