the 2011 king's meadow lily field

038

We had so looked forward to the annual visit to a king's meadow lilies (fritillaria) field.

This year it was also the first time a couple of excited bobbaloos (Jojo and Buddernut) were to tag along in the travel cabin.

But to our surprise and huge disappointment, the field that last year had been so gorgeously in bloom was now already way overblown.

But for a single one still bravely standing proud in that field.

Oh, it was a sad, sad moment for us all.

Still a pretty field, a secret place of green magic.

But no king's meadow lilies waving in the wind in all their delicate glory. Oh, May nature be better with us next year.

A lovely and fun visit nonetheless, with terrific photos, as always! :-)

I can empathise with your disappointment, but a place of serene green magic for the rest of us. Thanks for sharing.

Oh så ljuvligt med deras små bakar och deras perspektiv. Synd på kungsängsliljan dock, bättre lycka nästa år!

Själv kommer jag varken iväg på liljetittning eller fikor, för jag har sjuka barn... :( Igår var jag dock på annan liljetittning en liten sväng då jag gick lite i skogen häromkring och såg liljekonvaljer. Också ganska överblommade dock.

Pia, it is still a magic place despite the Fritellarias flowering earlier then expected. I also like the tiny passengers.
