Yesterday was a gorgeous day, it was 13c sun out beautiful blue sky's with wispy clouds. The birds were singing their hearts out, building nests. The flowers are out early, snow drops, crocuses, daffodils and many more. But alas today it is grey and blowing a gale.
Since my visit a few years ago and to Majorelle Garden in Marrakesh, when I viewed these gorgeous flowers and super colours I think of this place.
This beautiful small cactus was in their garden with these sweet flowers.
The Majorelle Garden (حديقة ماجوريل) is a twelve-acre botanical garden and artist's landscape garden in Marrakech, Morocco. It was designed by the expatriate French artist Jacques Majorelle in the 1920s and 1930s, during the colonial period when Morocco was a protectorate of France.
My apologies I was on auto, and pressed UK, instead of Morocco, Marrakesh, but these are grown over here in Botanical gardens.

These cactus flowers are truly gorgeous and sit perfectly against the red gravel. Ideally exposed with superb colours and clarity. We seem to be having the much the same weather as you, a couple of decent days strung together followed by more showers, but that is more or less what we expect down here at this time of year.

You have perfectly captured the anomalies of nature. The beautiful flowers stand in stark contrast to the thorny cactus as well the arid desert soil. Like the tight crop as well. Nice photo from a keen eye, thanks for sharing.

Hi Iain,it's easy to correct the location,it's enought to click on EDIT on the left and then you can change the location and finally click on UPDATE. (it's too easy on the beta TE version http://beta.trekearth.com/viewphotos.php?l=3&p=1452936 ).And the pic is truly beautiful,a minimalistic capture from these gardens that i visited me too in the same year,made with the best quality of details,colors and exposure,i like it!! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

The picture has nice warm colors. Light management
and the composition are very good (I like the open
space left). The cut makes the picture nice wide.
