Flowers seem intended for the solace of ordinary humanity.
I had a bit of unexpected free time Monday afternoon so I took the camera and headed for the garden center. It's always a lift to the spirits to spend time among the flowers and plants there. It's also a lovely place to play with the camera and learn a bit more about how to use it.
A budding ivory primrose.
These cheerful pansies make me think of warm sunshine and shadows.
Iceland poppies look like they are made of tissue paper ~ so delicate and ever so slightly rumpled! They carry a bounty of pollen for the bees that were visiting as well!
I love the rich blossoms of Rannunculus. This little green fly seemed to be quite happy with his lovely perch.
A trip to the garden center was just what I needed. It made spring real and calmed my spirits which have been a bit ruffled of late.
