41/14: spring is here

Woah-oh-oh, skies are blue… Oh sorry, this isn’t karaoke kool kats.com. I was just about to break out into song (Chapel of Love by the Dixie Cups).

Spring is definitely here, with a magnificent show of irises and other seasonal delights. What a joy to be out in the garden on such a delightful day!

Going on walks is always a good way to see Nature at her best. Beautiful flowers always bring a smile to my face.

Even weeds can look attractive in their symmetry, such as dandelions, as long as they’re not in my garden!

At night under the streetlight they create a lovely contrast.
