Let’s take a moment to consider
the seriousness of apple blossom,
its fragrance and its durability.
compared to ephemeral and silly
blossoms of the flirty cherry,
flashing her delicate pink frilly
blooms and dropping them
like spring wedding confetti
from a fruitless ornamental tree.

Lillian is our host for this Monday’s Quadrille, and she insists on being silly!
