England In Spring Bloom

June 2, 2013

My camera was very busy last month for

we had three months of blooming crushed into just one month

due to the third coldest Spring on record

England in spring bloom

From camellias to primroses,

daffodils to tulips,

from rhododendrons to rapeseed fields,
bluebells to buttercups

– typically, each slowly savored –

Nature has been playing a game of ‘catch up’…

providing an unusual display of overlapping blossoms within the last 31 days

England is now humming with life
and has pretty much caught up with the season

 –

The month of June enters
with its crazy long days of sunlight,
lavender and roses on the cusp of blooming

Ah, the adventures of living on a garden island…
Joy
