Floral Libidinous Abandon . . .

At the risk of being, well, conventional, and of venturing into an area of photography beyond my limited photographic competence, out of my water, or out of my more frequented junkyard, graveyard, or boatyard soil ; let me just say, I am so overjoyed that Spring has finally sprung around here, flowers are blooming in wild abandon, leaves are coming out on trees at last, life is loudly proclaiming triumph over the long cold sleep of Winter, that I am going to offer up a few photos of flowers from our garden taken this afternoon as a small offering to whatever deities cause the sap to rise and leaves to unfurl and the petals to blossom. . . So, from our apple tree which bloomed for the first time this year, via an orange "renoncule" (of the buttercup family), to the lowly primrose which multiply with little encouragement from one year to the next, here goes . . .

How beautiful! Spring is slow in coming around here...so it is especially nice to see that flowers are gracing your corner of the world:-)

Que ça fait du bien de voir de jolies fleurs dont certaines deviendront de très bons, beaux fruits...! Tu apportes de la couleur sur le net...! Je te passes bien de la pommade car, je te le demande bien bas, cela serait un honneur pour moi si j'apparaissais dans ta liste de blogs ( fascinating blogs )... Je sais que tu es très vu et lu et voilà... Je sais que tu es fasciné par mon blog de toute manière... ! ! ! J'en ferais de même de mon côté...! Merci beaucoup Owen pour ta générosité !...A bientôt !...

Also the orange renoncule looks alot like the marigolds we have here in the states...but our marigolds are annuals is this flower a pernennial? Really nice angle on this Owen....really nice...
