Sea Pinks

This spring business is pretty good fun isn’t it?! I’m glad it finally decided to arrive. Yesterday we went for a walk on the beach and I was looking for some new spring growth and was delighted to find the Sea Pinks (or Thrift) are starting to flower. These were one of the first flowers I took photos of with my first DSLR and I’m really quite fond of them. I rather like this shot even though it’s not particularly well focused – it has a kind of dreamy quality which conjures up relaxing summer days on the beach…

And a you can imagine (assuming you’re a regular reader), I had to get in close and get some macro shots too…

There were also some other very small flowers which I’ve now identified as being types of Scurvy Grass, possibly Danish Scurvy Grass on the left and English Scurvy Grass on the right:
