‘Just living is not enough’, said the butterfly, ‘one must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower’. ∼ Hans Christian Andersen, The Complete Fairy Tales
My favourite flowers? All of them! All time favourite: violets – for the smell, delicacy and abundance (no good photo so far…). However below you can find honorable mentions:
- for the smell: lily of the valley, peonies and roses;
- for the delicacy: bluebells, pasque flowers and eustomas;
- for the abundance: lupine, hydrangeas and cherry blossom.
