Do you want more pretties? Do you? DO YOU?

So cold today my hands went purple when I cycled gloveless, but though my hands were bloodless the world was not lifeless.

I went out running, third day on the bounce, 8.5km, hoping to end up at a garden centre to check up on the price of bee friendly plants for my work project but, hey, it's Easter Sunday, not open.

I rather thought it would be, so never mind.

There was a gentle rain falling, but it didn't bother me, it in fact made my day rather refreshing. It put a bit of colour on all the flowers as well, with many different species now on view in the cemetery, especially around the ditch where the wild garlic grows. Buttercups have now emerged.

I just kept going and enjoyed it all.

  1. So beautiful. Do nothing for Easter in NE Scotland - everything open. And the postie delivers mail Good Friday and Easter monday. We have our gorse flowering so all the borders of the fields are bright yellow. Hope they are good for insects.

  2. Great collection of spring flowers there, Si.

  3. Thank you. I'm really enjoying my running at the moment, when I can be relatively pain free

  4. lovely photos, your ramsons and bluebells are well ahead of ours!

  5. Thank you everyone! My favourite time of year.

  6. These are beautiful and eye-catching plants and flowers. The spring season has brought its beautiful colours with it and has spread them everywhere.
