The Changing of the Guard

This picture shows the ephemeral and rapidly changing nature of the season.

This little patch of aconite in the cemetery has only been in flower for less that two weeks, conditions being obviously more favourable in Friary Gardens for them.

However, they are on the way out, always the saddest loss for me, as I fond these little yellow blooms very attractive. Now the rather more plebeian daffodils are stomping all over them as they fade away for another year.

Rather insensitive. But I doubt flowers do empathy.

  1. Lovely to see the flower photos coming back, on a wild flower walk this moth as well as flower Id course, might need to warm up a little or it's going to be a short walk..

  2. I'm sure it will, timing wise I think it's a pretty normal spring

  3. Hmm...DO flowers have empathy? Go ask Alice, I think she'll know... Weeds! Weeds! A very thorny question.

  4. There was a "Tales of the Unexpected" where plants and trees screamed when they were cut down

  5. Plants do have empathy of a sort....
