Purple Spring in Nykøbing

Last Autumn (2018) has been absolutely fantastic in terms of colours. This 2019 Spring, I was amazed by the very numerous vibrant flowers at Strandboulevarden, along the Guldborgsund strait ! The most vibrant ones are various cultivars of Aubrieta. It’s easy to see why the genus got its name from Claude Aubriet, a French flowers painter. Clinging to the wall in a flow of mauve flowers, the purple rock cress is among the first to offer an explosion of colours at the beginning of the spring. Among few other species, I also saw some timid violets, that I don’t remember seeing the former years.
