A FLOWERY WALK ON EASTER MONDAY

I went for a short walk today, in the beautiful sunshine, hardly any wind. The birds were singing, sounds of children playing outside, and dogs barking, a very relaxed bank holiday in Ireland, quiet and peaceful. And because it is April already it comes as no surprise that along the walk I see bright spring flowers laughing at the sun.
This little flower is called Veronica, or in plain English Speedwell grows along the Irish roadsides, it’s so small that it takes an almost trained eye to find them, but close up they are very pretty.

And these bright blue Violets are supposed to be flowering in March, but I only found them opened in the last few days, quite a few of them along the boreen.

Lesser Celandine, lots of it along the road sides.

Daisies and Gorse brightening up the roadsides as well.  The scent of the Gorse is lovely at the moment, especially when the afternoon warmth of the sun brings out their scent, a lovely almost Coconut flavour I always think.
