I went out with Callie the collie yesterday morning and took a lot of springtime pictures. It was pretty cold out there, and sopping wet. Later in the day, it rained hard. There was a shower of sleet, which means a lot of ice pellets along with the rain. And it's cold this morning too — around 5ºC / 40ºF — but sunny. I'll take it.
See if you can recognize all these flowers that are blooming right now near Saint-Aignan.
Scotch broom [genêt], wild rose [églantier], bluebell [campanule], vine [vigne] and peony [pivoine].ReplyDelete
You win the prize, CHM: a week's room and board in a charming abode on edge of the Touraine vineyards at Saint-Aignan!ReplyDelete
O.K. I'll take it.
I like the Dog Rose picture the best...ReplyDelete
well done Ken on getting good pictures on a foul day!!
The flowers look like they don't mind more rain and the sunshine must have been helpful for the photographer.ReplyDelete
Our weather is finally just right, hoping it moves along your way, so that your garden will prosper.
Those are lovely photos of happy blooms, enjoying the wet. I think. :)ReplyDelete
Je n'en reviens pas de cette églantine. Chez moi, elles sont loin d'être en fleur...ReplyDelete
Well done, CHM. Scotch broom is everywhere in Oregon and I didn't even recognize it!ReplyDelete
Mary, Scotch broom is very invasive. I'm convinced that I'm allergic to its pollen. I hate to see it invading our environment but it is pretty in springtime.ReplyDelete
Olivier, notre climat doit subir une plus forte influence océanique que le climat de Bourgogne. Plus tempéré, autrement dit. C'est intéressant parce que Walt et moi on pense qu'on pourrait un jour aller vivre à Auxerre, par exemple, ou dans une autre petite ville dans cette région, si on décidait de quitter la campagne.
I recognized the rose and the grapes, but that was it. I assume the Scotch Broom is the yellow flower?ReplyDelete
Yes, Starman, the broom flower is the yellow one.ReplyDelete
