in the garden... and on the streets.
Here are a selection of beautiful scenes from the last few days.
Down in a dark and damp part of the Coulée Verte, lichen surrounds the blossoms.
On the streets, in full sunshine, everything is completely out. Even against the fencing of the rugby 'stade' the blossom struggles through the Leylandii hedge.
White, pink and yellow are the dominant colours.
Although blue can creep in, as at the foot of our garden magnolia.
Little blue stars amongst the stellar explosion of pink and white...
Someone else has a much bigger magnolia than us!
Having put crystalised mimosa seeds on my cupcakes this weekend, I was interested to study the real plant. It really is made up of little yellow balls!
Enjoy your day - sunny or not!
