Greetings again from Scotland!
Monday I went to the supermarket, and by the door was a large bucket filled with bunches of flowers. I found myself drawn back to them as I was shopping – and then I realised … I am hungry for colour! The winter has been a time of black and white, snow and stark skeletons of trees – and now world is at its most drab, all muddy greens and browns. Spring has not yet arrived. So I chose a bunch of the yellowest roses I could find, and hurried back to start taking photos. And I haven’t stopped since! The colour hints at the crocuses and daffodils yet to bloom. It is the best UKP2 I’ve spent! And I haven’t stopped snapping since (thank heavens for digital – processing them all would cost a fortune!)
I think for me March will be ‘Hungry for Colour’ month ;o)
Then I went for tight close ups of the intricate petals and intense colours of a single flower.

Thanks Elisabeth. I’m sure we all appreciate your beautiful splash of color after the grayness of winter. It’s a welcome reminder of what’s to come!
