These photos were taken on a rainy spring day in Manchester, but now I've processed them I think they could have been taken in Japanese park. Call me crazy but they seem to have taken on an exotic, sultry air.
Can't you hear the swish of silk kimonos and temple bells?
Is that the roof of a tea house?
But sadly no, it's not cherry blossom but alemanchier flowers against the red brick of a Mancunian house.
Oh for a little exoticism ... do you remember 'The Ginger Tree'?
