Spring Flowers in Italy
|Almond Blossom Time|
Having had beautiful early violets covering the ground beneath our olive groves and the beautiful spot colours of periwinkles under the trees, the land is now covered in wild flowers. Daisies, dandelions and poppies abound. The last of the blossom has finished.
Everywhere we turn at this time of year we are surrounded by beautiful flowers. At the moment my garden is a mass of blue iris as shown in my image 'Beautiful Iris'. These are iris that I was originally given as a gift that I have lifted and propagated. They now grow as wild flowers along the edge of my woodland and under the trees. They love growing in the shallow mountain soil. What a joy they are to see each day. You can read more about my iris in my art blog.
Cultivated Spring Flowers
|Early Flower Display|
Whilst the acacia trees are humming with the sound of insects and bees after the nectar from their beautiful white racemes of flowers other flowers, newly planted flowers are becoming established. Like this beautiful 'Early Flower Display'.
What a wonderful time of year for spring flowers. Our thoughts now have to turn to the summer heat and the flowers that will survive it. I will be buying my red geraniums very soon!
