May Cowslips

By BarbaraR
Hi all,
Many thanks for all the very nice comments on my last
upload of the little Pulmonaria flowers in a blue medicine bottle.
Here's one I'm rather pleased with.
Cowslips in a slightly wonky little antique amber-brown medicine bottle.
Hopefully with the look of an old painting ?
I put it up as a little tribute to my late parents.
They both loved Cowslips and both died in May. Dad just a year ago,
Mum seven years ago.
Another name for the Cowslip is 'Key of Heaven'
Enjoy the sunshine if you can everyone.
Barbara Smile

Lovely effect, Barbara. I like the fallen bloom, it completes the composition.

Absolutely beautiful Barbara.
My colours and cowslips remind me of walking three miles to school in Ireland.
