This spring is like no other spring – in so many ways. The nights are freezing cold, and many flowers and trees do not grow very much. They even say we might not have new potatoes for Midsummer (a Must…).
I nearly missed out on the Pasque flowers, and arrived just in time to see them in flower – and faded – at the same time.
The sandy meadows stretch widely in the sun, just by the sea. We seldom go to the sea, so this was a fun opportunity for the dogs. As Milo is only two years old, he still acts like it was the first time. Jumping and bathing like crazy.
Pasque flowers have a special charm. True beauties when in flower – and another kind of delicate beauty when faded. Few flowers are bestowed this gift.
Only about ten centimeters high, they crave a crawl to show their faces.
Leaving the sea and heading to the top of the hills. You can see the Pasque flowers’ home meadow down on your right.
The forest path down again, treats you to orchids as well as other plants and flowers striving in the chilly wind.
After a couple of hours’ sunny walk in the company of our dogs, Totti wanted me to stop photographing and just MOVE ON.
That thought in his little curly head, is nicely demonstrated like this…by not following my husband any more. He just had to let him stay put and wait for me. Any dog owners who recognize this…?
