The Colours of Spring

Spring colours...

Mauves, yellows, blues.

The tulip season is now overlapping with
the Narcissus bonanza that started in February.

There are beds of bright-eyed pansies in
many Irish gardens these days.

The linked photo was taken in the National Botanic Gardens
in Glasnevin.

A riot of colour always smacks you straight in the eye.
Recently I visited a very pretty Cork garden, full of very
well tended Camellias and Magnolias. The owner told the
story of one visitor who had found the vivid pinks which
festoon the garden "vulgar".

Spring, vivid pigmentation and floral exuberance are synomymous.

Here's to many more week of jolly "Vulgar Colour".
It's just my thing.

Vulgar? Yikes! Somebody must not have liked flowers, or else found the shape there suggestive or something. Which begs the question: why visit a flower garden?

It is not our's to question why...

I've tried to answer the question you posted on my rock pool photo in the
"Shortsights" blog.

I've become taken with colour in all its forms and agree that anybody who finds it "vulgar" probably has "issues".
