We’ve had a few warm days, still interspersed with some chilly winds. All of nature has seemed behind, reluctant to wake from its winter’s sleep. But now,with remarkable speed, our countryside finally seems to be yawning and stretching up to the tepid sun. Leaves are unfurling to reveal the vivid green only seen this time of year. Pink and white cherry blossom flutters in the breeze, cheering our streets. The bright yellows of daffodils have given way to clusters of paler yellow primroses on roadside banks, and bold bluebells dancing anywhere they find a space. Red tulips and yellow wallflowers stand jauntily on display in front gardens. It’s a welcome explosion of colour.
I’m constantly amazed and appreciative of God’s design of our world; the green and blue of the grass and (sometimes) sky, are next to each other on the colour wheel, and as such create a calming backdrop for other colours. And I love the mix of blue and yellow flowers in spring time…they compliment each other so well.
The pictures were taken on a recent walk.
