Colouring the streets with pink and white.

Oh dear, it's hard to believe that we're already in the middle of May! Spring has already come, spent its allotted days for this year, and is almost coming to an end. While spring is not my favourite season, it definitely is one that kind of drifts in like a pleasant storm, taking you by surprise, and then passes by before you realize.

I just wanted to share something nice that I came across two weeks ago. It was early morning and I was just heading out to work, when I walked past this cluster of flowers sticking out of the fence just outside a nursery.

I'm not sure why I liked it so much. Maybe because I like pink, or how the patch is placed at such an obscure spot, or simply because it's a tiny remainder of springtime. But for whatever reason, I took a particular liking to it, and it makes me happy just walking by every time.

Unfortunately, they're not as abundant as they were a few weeks ago anymore. But today was a warm and sunny Saturday, so I decided to take a walk outside and snap a few shots of the blooms before they went away for good.

At first I thought it was a rather arbitrary place to plant cute little flowers, but I'm glad whoever decided to plant them there did. Brilliant!
