Now I don’t know what it is, but there is something about this photograph that really caught my eye.. Whether it is the depth of field on it, I don’t know but the bright vivid yellow reminds you so much of spring.
The time when lambs are being born and the first tulips, crocuses and daffodils start to burst out from the barren ground that winter has left behind. I love spring, it is the sign that the dark nights are now a thing of the past and the summer sun will soon fill our skies… Well that is unless we have a summer of rain.
Which is quite normal.. mind you I have never known Kent to be as wet as it was this past rummer. Summer days were few and far between. However one thing I did notice was this, that as soon as they enforced the drought order, the heavens opened.
I think this past summer I have seen enough rain to last a life-time. And they call this global warming.. I thought we were supposed to have hot, dry summers and freezing cold winters. Well to be perfectly honest, the summer this year was damp and dismal.
And as we are approaching Christmas the temperatures have plummeted and believe me it is freezing here at the moment.. and the weatherman says it is going to get even colder.
Well the thought of those lovely flowers which will bloom again in spring, is enough to warm my heart and increase my yearning for spring to arrive.
Hope you enjoy!!!
