I wish a very joyous Floralia to all my fellow citizens!
I’m afraid I have very little skill in the visual arts, but nevertheless I want to participate in the Ludi Florae to honor the goddess Flora.
There are two flowers that for me are heralds of spring. Both the narcissus and the iris were favorites of Roman pleasure gardens. Where I live they grow wild. When I see them open up on my regular walk, I see the footsteps of Flora and know she will soon be among us. Here are some pictures from one of my walks.
Here are my entries for the contest, taken just a few meters from my student apartment by my university.
1. Every spring, the blossoms bloom and make the park the most beautiful place I know, walking through the lane of these trees truly evokes a sense of awe at the beauty of nature and of the world we live in.
2. Happened to come across a bee friend while taking the first picture, they were kind enough to let me take their picture. The humble workers of Flora, keeping our precious nature alive
