Usually, I love seeing blossom on trees. We don't have just one month for blossom in Cyprus; it starts with the almond trees (gorgeous white blossom) in about February, and then progresses through various other trees - whites and pinks and yellows - as the spring progresses.
Then suddenly, in May, we start to see purple blossom. Lots of it, particularly along Fanoroumani Street, where we walk to and from the town.
I have nothing against purple as a colour. But for some reason, I find it - or at least, this shade of purple - slightly disturbing on trees. It's really quite nice-looking blossom:
But there are so many of these trees in Larnaka! For most of the year, they're fairly ordinary looking, then one day they're all covered in purple.
I don't even know what they are. Maybe the problem is that the colour really does NOT go with the bright blue of the Cyprus sky in May.
