Beautiful Poppies

Is there anyone who doesn’t love the time when poppies bloom? In an imperfect world, I try to seek out perfect moments and the time when poppies cover the fields is one of those moments.

Poppy fields look like impressionist paintings. It’s easy to see where the artists found their inspiration.

Poppies are special flowers for me. When I was a child I loved collecting poppies but I noticed they became sad very quickly so I stopped picking them. I realised that it was better to leave them where they were born. Whenever I feel an urge to pick flowers I think of my ‘childhood poppies’ and stop myself. Cut flowers may look beautiful for a few days but you are watching something beautiful die a premature death. I now never accept flowers as gift.

I hope you all have a lovely day.

Scent of roses in air!

What I like most about this season is dynamism – for example, you see ten blooming flowers in one moment and there are another twenty sprouting in an hour!

To maximize the pleasure the ‘rose season’ gives me I walk a lot. It’s not too hot or cold outside and air is full of different adorable scents of flowers – pure pleasure!

So why don’t we start this day with a touch of colorful roses? I’m not possessive, I can share pictures I’ve taken with you 😍😍

My spring rose collection, part I.

Have a beautiful day,

Wonderful Vinka!

I was ‘hunting’ for beautiful Vinka flowers yesterday – it was not easy to find them as they love to hide their beauty from the sun, especially behind other plants. However I won our Hide and Seek game and found several Vinka hiding places!

One of the most popular ground cover plants, it can thrive in both cold and warm climates. It blooms prolifically, is easy to grow and tolerates poor soil and drought.

Wonderful blue Vinka flowers in my gallery:

Have a beautiful day,

I was finding and photographing lovely Iris flowers for the last couple of weeks.
Here are some pictures of the first and last Iris flowers to bloom this year. I found blue, purple and white colors.

Nature is the best artist, isn’t it? More iris photos:

Did you know that an Iris flower has great spiritual meaning in different countries? It is a symbol of creativity, great power and good news ^^

Have a happy day, full of only good news 🙂

Lovely Lilac in Bloom!

The lilac is in bloom now and smells utterly divine. I do love it so much! The lilac season is one of my favorite things about spring – the most fragrant time of the year.

Here are some photos of beautifully blooming purple and white lilacs
I found while walking in parks, woodland and even in flower markets.
It was very pleasant to be around lilac bushes because of their delicious scent – in fact I could smell them before I saw them!

Happy May day to you and may spring stick around!
