the 2010 king's meadow lily field

IMG_3480

Saturday offered simply glorious weather - although I find it rather disturbing how summer arrived before spring had a real chance to settle in these parts - and it was finally time for the season inauguration of toy car - the car that magically usually blows all the troubles and miseries away. If only for a while it is welcome. Yes, so very much more than welcome these days - which was lovely in itself.

What made the trip even finer was the destination. The destination was a not known by many field with the sweet king's meadow lily (kungsängslilja aka fritillaria). Despite inside information to the magic place it took a while to locate. But once found, oh sweetness galore, a flowery sight for sore eyes.

And the lilies shared the field with wood anemones, cowslips, dandelions and others. Just beautiful.

I hope the sight and time spent in the field of such delight will help make another gruesome week feel tad bit better - yes, it's been five months and I still hope things will change the way I want sooner than soon. My constant companion called melancholy need a very long holiday. Better yet, a new best friend -

Here some glimpses of one day in May, a secret field in Sweden ~

Ah, beautiful!
Fritillaria are amongst my favourite flowers and here you have them growing wild in a secret meadow - I am in awe, and just a bit envious too!
Perfect photos,

It is a blustery windy cool night here, and I so enjoyed your beautiful spring pictures Miss P. The warmth and sunshine can be felt here in old NZ.

I hope you can shake off your blues soon, I hate that feeling and understand a little of how you feel.

Thanks for sharing your world with us,its ups and downs.

Smooches

thank you very much for the sweet comment, purest green!

thank you kindly, xtiand, my pleasure:)

thanks, denise, aren't such secret hideouts THE best?!

thank you, sweet you two, julie and poppy q!

thank you, sapphire, it is a bit tricky to give directions - and we don't want hordes of people to discover such secret places, eh;) - we nearly missed it ourselves, but it is in the semi vicinity of norrtälje town in the roslagen area.
