144/2011 sprouting vine

Our bare balcony is finally getting its summer greenery, with the vine sprouting vigorously in every possible direction. It need to be tamed a bit every year – otherwise it will totally take over. Green growth everywhere you look!

143/2011 buds

A crab apple tree is ready to bloom, with beautiful pink buds waiting to open any minute. This is down the road from our house, and produces tiny little apple like fruit in the autumn, which just stay on the tree, rotting away. I don’t know if they could be used for anything. Probably far too sour – never tried one!

142/2011 layers of green

How the low evening light changes the scenery, making one section of the hedge almost golden yellow. Spring is a real feast to our eyes and senses.

141/2011 hidden beauty

On our way to a picnic place, we came across a huge bed of wild violets in the forest. How deinty and absolutely exquisite! What a wonderful world!

I should venture into the more untrodden paths more often!

140/2011 almost there

The big trees are still waiting to get into full greenery, while the rest of the scenery is already quite uniformly dark green. May is always a wonderful time of fast change – you can almost see the colour schemes transforming in front of your eyes.

Just a snap – waiting to give my husband a ride from his late meeting.

I’ve caught a terrible cold, really feeling low, and still having to do lessons after being away to France last week. I feel as shaken and boring as this picture…

138/2011 invaded by dandelions

Haven’t I just noticed this before? Or are there noticeably more dandelions this spring than in previous years? Large areas of grass and fields seem to be covered in yellow. At this stage they do look rather pretty, especially to me as I love yellow. But wait a bit, and they will be quite a nuisance!
