Pagan Eye: Pink Blossom and Good Thoughts for Spring

Fairy witch Daniela Simina took this photo of pink blossom after seeing my post yesterday of a blossom tree in the street outside my house. She wrote:

"I found your last post very inspiring. It gave me the opportunity to reflect about beauty, the lack or abundance thereof, and various meanings that it takes. This tree grows on a patch of land with nothing remarkable about it. Or better said, the place was unremarkable until this tree put on display its hundreds of little pink bunches. I stood beneath and pink fluffy mass and looked upward. Beauty, of the elaborate kind such as a flowering tree, stands out easily when contrasted by the plainness of it’s surroundings; but how could one single flower stand out amid hundreds of others? What catches the eye and makes one flower or person stand out in a crowd? Is beauty always (only) in the eyes of the beholder? Good for thought on a bright spring day."

Daniela Simina is the author of the forthcoming Pagan Portals' title: Where Fairies Meet, Parallels between Irish and Romanian Traditions, published by Moon Books.

My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting - seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself.
