In Spring, the orchards of Ibiza are carpeted with wild flowers.
At this season of the year woodlands are often gloriously carpeted with extensive areas of blue. It is bluebell time. Surely the individual flowers that combine to create such magnificent spectacles must be blue? But closer examination reveals that this is not always so. Although the overall effect may be blue beyond doubt, individual flowers can comprise a variety of colours and shades – as in the example pictured below.

Perhaps an explanation of the title would be helpful. The first post on this blog was posted on 9 May 2011. So, today is the third anniversary and I have posted 1344 photos during these three years – hence today is number 1345. The photo on that first day was of wild flowers in Ibiza. It seems fitting to mark the occasion with a picture from the same series.
