[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
March 20 is the first day of spring and by then these "weeds" will be blooming once more....I find that even weeds are better than the bare ground in this area which catches toss-aways such as bottles, cans and needles from things that go into a drug users arm. So I walk or this year perhaps not, gaze into the land from afar and enjoy all of the flying bugs which shall be attracted.

Hello Bob,
this is an abstract composition of many different flowers and variety of colours. how exciting to see this, as it is not that easy to be seen in my place.
I like the yellows as it dominate the view, maybe the placing is right.


Ciao Bob, lovely spring composition with beautiful flowers, splendid light and wonderful natural colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Bob,
For me these flowers are not weed and quite true that they are better than bare ground. Love the colors and diversity of plants on your picture.
And of course we are waiting for Spring too.
Thanks for this natural shot.
Kind regards

Hi Robert,

Hi Bob.
It is funny that we have all these species too despite the distance between our countries. Very natural and nice scene. Thanks a lot for lovely piece of spring.

Nice to have spring before the summer comes, it seems to make summer longer somehow and weeds such as these come into bloom, the colours and warmth make up what is for me the best time of the year.
Here the blue vetch and yellow snapdragons nicely summarise that wonderful season in a fine capture from your archives.
Something we can look forward to Bob!
Thanks for that!

Hello Bob. I like the title of your countdown to more colors of the outside world. The yellow and violet flowers with some ready to pollinate is well depicted in the frame. I hope you are keeping yourself warm till then. Kind regards - Jusni

Hola Robert,
primero muchas gracias (thanks) por tus amables comentarios a mi fotografía.
En cuanto al trabajo que nos presentas, algo complejo, pero mostrando bien
el fenómeno primaveral de cada año.
Salutations from Spain and best week end:

Hello Bob,
Winter is definitely a waste of time and we do look forward to spring too! Only 2 months to go and we can get out of hibernation!! In the meantime it is lovely to see your picture of a meadow in the Swedish colours - blue and yellow! Nice details and well framed!
TFS and all the best wishes, Ulla

Hi Bob,

The subject is well framed. The point of view is shwoing the details and colors of the weeds and of the tiny flowers. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

I just love the colours in this (the thumbnail jumped right out of the screen at me)-- much needed on this less than spring-like day!
Great diagonal composition here and the bokeh works beautifully to give us a context for the image
