Tiny Forget-me-nots in their thousands, everywhere making a blue and green carpet between the larger showiest blooms of the Tulips, resplendent in the many cultivated colours and shades of the floral rainbow on display. Forget-me-nots, as the name implies, bring to mind the increasing number of people that have touched our lives who sadly are not here to enjoy the spectacle. The Tulips, ephemerally beautiful, a short lived tasteful display, bringing memories of when the bulbs were set. How one small insignificant little brown bulb, can have silently within the earth, metamorphosed, and pushed a part of itself unerringly towards the light of the sun, to become so gloriously beautiful. Carnations, in various shades, pure white, and purple and white variegated, cultivated by genetic manipulation to preserve the beauty of the desired shade and combinations of pastel beauty.
Everywhere there is a carpet of shades of green, setting off the rainbow effect of the colours of this glorious April display. Chlorophyll within the leaves of the plants and the blades of grass on the lawn, giving them their green attire, enabling them to soak up the sun to acquire energy, to contribute towards photosynthesis.
A day to remember as renewed life Springs into being!
