Anything natural adding colours to the city makes it look so much better...

It's soooooo romantic! A Paris aussi il fait beau aujourd'hui, la Ruche se transforme peu à peu. D'ailleurs pour ceux qui veulent suivre son évolution, voici le site du seul et unique blog sur notre petit monde à part http://www.lagautriere.com/blog/index.php?La_ruche

A waterfall of gold... An explosion of honey... A fairy's crinoline...

that would have been little but for its context, its lighting and close up framing...

The united masterpiece of nature and the artist photographer.

To think that this spirit will also wither in the unwholesome prosaicness of the city...

This reminds me of former springs when all the flower beds and blossomed trees of the cities exhaled their divine scents over things and beings and the children delighted to walk around and under them giving occasionally a jump to pluck a small flower, clasp it in their palms and secretly bring it to their noses. Then they went on about their games or occupations humming a tune that no traffic noise could stifle..., no more than the swallow carol and bee buzz.

Bless you, Greg, for these reminiscences!

Confession: j'ai toujours eu une sainte horreur de cette fleur. C'est ridicule mais je les déteste férocement. Ça et les dahlias (pas tous). Ceci dit, c'est une très bonne photo!!
