Wait, are those spring blooms?
NIEU-BETHESDA — The pear blossoms in Nieu-bethesda started to concern residents this year as they remained tightly curled up in their green sepals way into October.
They were wise, as the last week of September was still frosty and cold and not suitable to the strangely scented, chiffon-like skirted flowers that have finally exposed themselves to the blue-skied spring.
This past week, the avenue leading into the village was a sight to behold, and the white lambs that flanked the trees seemed quite at home frolicking under the shady bowers of blossoms.
There is a fresh sense of new beginnings throughout Nieu-bethesda - birds take song to a new level, bees go about their work, the soft sun beckons one out of bed a little earlier and the harsh bite of winter seems a thing of the past.
