The lovely Janis of Life according to Jan and Jer set this week's challenge which is all about Spring.
Here is what I want you to do.....
Take a photo of whatever represents Spring to You....and tell us why.
England in the spring...is a rolling progression of favourite flowers.
The faithful hellebores which brightened Winter's gloomy days, continue in abundance in our garden. They've been with us since before Christmas and are still flowering now.
Followed by the humble snowdrop auguring Spring's arrival.
February, when camellias are in bud, promising a blaze of colour in March.
March when flowers progress on apace, farewell snowdrops...
Time to welcome crocuses yellows, purples and white in that order.
This year I was lucky one warm, fine sunny day to find honeybees busy amongst the crocuses. Take a look at the top of the page and you'll see what I mean...
March heading towards April now the narcissi and daffodils take centre stage. Purple crocuses fade so too the whites and yellows. Now we have an abundance of yellow shades.
Camellias are in bloom stately in red, white and pink.
Then, and this really means Spring, the first bluebells appear on stage.
Yellow daffs nodding in the breeze, described so well by William Wordsworth in his famous poem.
White hellebores fading...
Stately camellia...fragile, beautiful, but rain and wind soon destroy their transient beauty.
Such joy and delight to see the splendour of Spring flowers in colourful diversity.
Dark, dull, dire days of winter are behind us, Spring has to be seen to be believed.
Flowers promising finer days to come...time to look forward to when my rose garden is in bloom and climbing roses waft their heady scent into warm evening.
Thank you Jan, for setting today's topic.
I hope I've given a hint at the joys of an English Spring.
