Photograph of the Day: The Gifts of Spring

At last, I see welcoming changes from the dreary grey of winter. Here are some of my favourite sights of spring.

English primrose (Primula vulgaris)

English primroses are remarkably resilient; they bloom amidst the freezing rain of early spring, decorating kerbside lawns with blooms in shades of white, pale yellow, or mauve set against the amber colour of the centres.

In the homes, tulips of every imaginable colours decorate our living spaces with splashes of colours and intstantly bring life to combat the cold grey

Outside I often come across these unidentified bright yellow blooms of Cornelian cherry (Cornus mas) in defiance of the monotonous grey.

And, the white purity of hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna) is an unmistakable beacon of full-blown spring.
