Pink intermezzo

Ile de la Barthelasse
I don't have much time to write today so a summer flower will provide just the respite I need. It's a clover flower of course, called fleur de trèfle in French.

Pas beaucoup le temps d'écrire aujourd'hui, alors une fleur d'été nous offrira un joli moment de pause. C'est une fleur de trèfle bien sûr, clover flower en anglais.

I can see that you have been a very active August blogger!

We could have met (again) in Arles; I was there in the beginning of the week!

Did you learn about the future interesting projects for the old SNCF premises that you visited?

Pour ta punition, tu passeras le we devant ton écran!

The close-up of this lovely flower shows the detail of each petal very well!

Most people never take the time to look at a plain old clover. Thank you for sharing the beauty of this little flower.

The clover is very beautiful as a closeup, isn't it?

The caterpillar is amazingly like the local "iguana" in the garden.

Adore the Arles photography exhibition photos. Definitely on "the list" for Next Time.

Hope you're happily busy...nice to leave us a little pink to ponder :-)

Bravo Nathalie, Moi je fais un truc comme ça, c'est tout flou. J'aime bien ta façpn de présenter la chose, en Anglais, tu donnes la trauduc en Français et en Français tu donnes la traduc en Anglais. C'est assez marrant !

Nathalie, I would be happy for you to use my Yale window pictures for your blog. You have beautiful images here and it would be a joy to be included. Anne

Sharon said...

That is a stunning flower.

ruth said...

I didn't recognize it because I've never seen clover so close. That's amazing.

Louis la Vache said...

This fine image would make an excellent subject for a watercolor. "Louis" really likes the play of the light through the petals. Outstanding!

Lovely shades of pink!

Julie said...

Do you mean clover as in the grass? If so, this has opened my eyes just that little further. It is happening on a daily basis as I look at some of the blogs in this community.

Nathalie said...

Peter, Welcome back!

Anne M. thanks! I'm really looking forward to the 1st of Sept now.

Yes Julie, it's exactly that. The plain old clover. It was a miracle too when I opened the photo on my computer.

JE VEUX le même APN que toi, sinon je fais ma crise !
(Et surtout ta patience pour lutiner les fleurs de trèfle qui sont assez rase motte. Quoique certaines variétés soient plus hautes)
