In Spring, the orchards of Ibiza are carpeted with wild flowers.

What colour is a bluebell?

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.

Photo 1345

 

Click the image to enlarge

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.

The statistics from WordPress indicate that there have been more than 44000 views and it is an opportune time thank those of you who ‘drop in’  –  whether regularly or from time to time.  I hope that you will continue to enjoy what you find here.  Thank you.

Wild gladioli meadow

 

This photo was taken in Ibiza in a meadow of wild gladioli.  It was a bright, sunny day but with a fairly strong breeze.  Rather than attempting to ‘freeze’ the scene using a fast shutter speed, I have tried to capture the ‘feel’ of the moment as if in an impressionist painting.

Wild flowers and grasses

The glorious white sand beach of Pentle Bay on Tresco is fringed on the landward side by gentle dunes.

Among the marram grasses are unexpected patches of wild flowers and ferns.

Above the dunes is a coastal path

bordered by more wild flowers and grasses.
