Spring Beauty

Whilst out for a wander this afternoon after work I spotted this rather lovely sign that spring is definitely with us.  I’ve no idea what this gorgeous flower is so if anyone knows please feel free to share the knowledge.  Regardless of which species of flower this is its beautiful pink colouration was a joy to see…

Pink blooms beside Kalandsvatnet just outside Bergen.


A welcome splash of colour.
Even on a slightly overcast afternoon the bright pink shone.
On closer inspection we can the yellow centres in the flowers.
