Spring flowers 2012

Leave a comment

Well, today is Memorial Day, the unofficial start of Summer and as good a reason as any to post a few pictures of the flowers that bloomed during spring. It is beautiful to see the profusion of colours after the stark winter, but the clinical precision of the rows of daffodils I saw on my way to office wasn’t exactly what I expected from spring, being brought up on Wordsworth and W.B.Yeats.  But, thankfully, there are still weeds and the like that crop up in the unlikeliest of places and are still capable of taking your breath away…like the delicate dandelion, that is still a pleasure no matter how grown up you are 🙂
