>Artichokes and a lot of spring flowers

It’s the most colourful time of the year in the garden and in the garrigue because all the plants flower now before dying down again when the weather gets too hot and dry for them from June onwards.

And because the irises look so lovely now and won’t last for long I took a lot of photos of them this morning:
