Carpet of Flowers

When I went for a walk yesterday, the Celandines were really putting on a good show. The woodland path was surrounded by them. So bright and cheerful 🙂 And of course, I couldn’t just leave it there, I have to get closer 🙂 I didn’t notice at the time, but the central flower in theContinue reading “Carpet of Flowers”

Delicate Primrose Yellow

Primrose yellow is such a gentle, delicate kind of yellow. While the Daffodils, Dandelions and Forsythia are proclaiming the start of spring with their bright sunshine yellow, the primrose is more subtle with its approach. And when adorned with shining raindrops, the picture is complete. These Primroses are in my garden. I’m hoping to haveContinue reading “Delicate Primrose Yellow”

Golden

The sun seems to have left us for now, and days are quite grey and damp, and I am back at work. But I have memories of beautiful flowers from Compton Acres to cheer me up. These golden yellow flowers make a beautiful splash of colour and we even spotted a tiny caterpillar on oneContinue reading “Golden”

Yellow Loosestrife

Yellow Loosestrife take quite some time to flower. They seem to spend weeks and weeks looking as if they’ll flower any minute, and then finally a profusion of yellow blooms open and make it worth waiting for. The flower buds appeared at the beginning of June: By mid-June (15th) they looked fit to burst, readyContinue reading “Yellow Loosestrife”

Last weekend I came across this lovely area full of Celandines so I got down low (legs protesting) and got some shots showing the riot of yellow. I usually get a shot of an individual flower, so this is a different approach to try and share with you the glory of so much spring loveliness.Continue reading “Sunshine spread”

Freshly Emerged

From behind the furry covering, the fresh yellow stamens are now appearing on the Willow catkins. They’re clean and new and fresh. Some are all the way out now, and others just peeking. They looked lovely in the sunshine yesterday morning 🙂  In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Fresh.”

Yellow Thirds

I was looking through my photos to see what would work with the Weekly Photo Challenge this week and picked out a few to ponder … then when I was finished I looked at what I’d come up with and discovered I accidentally had a theme emerging! Three photos showing thirds and bokeh … andContinue reading “Yellow Thirds”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Symmetry

Ok, so maybe it’s not perfect symmetry, but when these petals fully unfurl, this Celandine will be a perfect symmetrical star of sunshine. The centre part is already symmetrical anyway! One of the first spring flowers you see around here and such a welcome splash of colour in the hedgerow. This one is one ofContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Symmetry”
