Sad Trumpet- Look, See, Pray

I have mixed feelings as April ends. It happens every year when the daffs in the garden finally finish their cheery display; there is usually a bit of a break between their passing and the next influx of colour. This year I have marked it by photographing the “Last Trumpet of Spring.” The trumpet is still big, brassy and bold but the other petals are fading fast.

That’s reward in itself. … More Feasting Greenfinch- Look, See, Pray
