Photographer's Note

Hello everybody! I have been missing from TE for a long time, too long for my liking; but I was just too busy with work!...
My last posting concerned the wild flowers taken on our walk to the first round of presidential elections, on April 21st! The weather was absolutely gorgeous then, and remained so until May 7th.
Since then, it has been grey and wet everyday; so I thought of bringing out the garden flowers I took on the same walk as the wild flowers, in order to put a bit of brightness into our grey days.
I know you can probably find the same flowers in different parts of the world, but not in all parts of the world, and not necessarily at the same time! ( I received some photos taken in a Swedish garden near Stockholm last weekend, and it was funny to see the tulips that had just come out in bloom . Our tulips have been finished for over a month.)
Anyway, here is border of aubrietias, aubriette in French, aubrietia deltoidea in Latin. The name comes from the nature painter: Claude Aubriet who lived in the 17th century and was the official painter of Louis XIV 's gardens. The plant is of mediterranean origin. Bees are very fond of them.
