I post pictures of them here every year, I think, but they're always so welcome when they appear, and they do so undemandingly well here. The new camera gave them added novelty this time too; an advantage of the compact and screen vs viewfinder is that it's easier to look up into their faces. Someone (was it Zephyr?) said they found them sad flowers because they insist on looking downward all the time. It's worth trying to get down under them though, to catch the sun through the petals.
The first bees of the year enjoy them too, though only really the white ones, which I noticed for the first time have a very delicate perfume. Once you start trying to catch the bees in them, you don't settle for just taking pictures of the flowers, I find.
