And so, to bluebell time; I didn’t have to look very far today, for a sight like this, in a country lane. What I love, though, is the opportunity to appreciate flowers in the wild, all mixed up, so to speak, the apparent randomness giving an extra beauty. That’s not to say that I don’t like formal gardens sometimes, but rather that the contrast is refreshing!It's kind to share!
Yes, it’s another tulip picture – even though I posted one only two weeks ago! The main excuse for this is the colour of these ones. Some of you know already how much I love magenta. Green, incidentally, is its complement, in terms of the physics of light and colour, as magenta combines red and blue.
I’m not too sure of the composition, here (I’ve given you the full frame, as shot) but my main intention was to capture the delicate look of the thin petals in the evening sun. In think the shallow depth of field, and hence the blurring of the background and most of the blooms seems to work, though.
I loved finding this in flower, this week. There are, of course, countless varieties of saxifrage, and signs of real spring are always welcome. Many varieties grow wild, but equally, a lot are also cultivated as garden flowers.It's kind to share!
This shot was taken just too late to be last Sunday’s picture. I’ve shown this flower on here before, but I don’t recall lungwort being in flower this early, as a rule. It seems that just a few hours of mild weather can make such a difference!It's kind to share!
