Counterpoint in weather

There the weather is changing and I just have time to squeeze in a match for the pesky pigeons!

Here the garden is surging, leaping, galloping towards summer.

There the rabbit is still in his winter coat.

In bud already!

The plants seem to be growing as I watch! And at the end of the day the light helped create some dramatic shots of geranium phaeum ‘Samobor’.

Here there are still days which are chilly, but the plants tell me winter is over and we can enjoy the colours, sounds, and scents of spring.

There it is a different matter.

The Daffodils

The daffodils have been glorious this spring, especially when the light shines through the petals. They are such an abundant response to life. Buried underground for months they have the courage to burst out for just a few weeks. I should take heart from them.
