Something Pretty

I don't know about you, but all that avian activity has worn me out. Let's kick back with a couple more relaxing, ain't-that-purdy shots of spring flowers. Here's the durable, dependable, poisonous-but-lovely lily-of-the-valley. It's been blooming for weeks now, and when the flowers fade they'll be replaced by bright red berries, which will contrast nicely with the by-then-yellowed foliage. As perennials go, it has quite a long showtime.
Thanks to my Canon's indispensable Vari-Angle display screen (still can't understand why THAT was discontinued) the sweet pink and yellow insides of these low-growing darlin's are revealed to living things that happen to be more than two inches tall.
