What I do not know about flowers:
- Their names
(OK, I can identify a rose or a carnation - but most flowers are anonymous for me and the ones in the picture totally unknown).
- Their botanical classification (species, Latin name, family).
What I do know about flowers:
- Their beauty (fragile and transitory)
- Their scent (should they have one)
- and the fact that seeing them can make my day, as these flowers did. I tried to capture the moment with my mobile phone.
But the feeling - abruptly being confronted with a high, all-blossoming bush - you must try and imagine for yourselves.
