Willy Nilly Friday, Skies and Reflections

1. Shining seas

We've come around to Friday again so I'm linking with several memes for the weekend.

The first two shots were taken on Easter Monday at Carrickfergus looking towards Belfast.

Belfast Lough

Whilst out for a walk in the Forest Park I noticed these lilies glowing like a thousand yellow lightbulbs in a swamp.  Their scent was really something also.
I think they are a variety of aquatic arum lily.


Behold the lilies



Snapped these reflections in town - 'old in the new'

  24. We call the yellow flowers Skunk Cabbage. It can have a bad smell, but I think they are beautiful. When they start to bloom in the swampy areas I know spring is here. - Margy
