I found this yellow flower on the ground today – it's so perfect despite the winter mud and rain, pedestrians, and several hours in a handbag! I don't understand how it can not have been trampled into the mud or squished in my bag…perfection has survived!
Sometimes it is lovely to be reminded that beauty does not always take the form we expect…the shape of this flower is quite odd really, but I was quite struck by its vibrant colour and delicate arrangement
One thing I really noticed about France this summer…there were the most beautiful butterflies everywhere! They were friendly too – this one sat on my hand for a good half hour!
