Spring has sprung in Sicily, and each day that high creeps ever closer. It is now that the island truly comes into its own.

Arriving in late Autumn last year, colours were muted, whilst during winter it was the vibrance of the oranges that contrasted against the drab gray brown landscape.

With each day that passes now, the blooms of spring are erupting in their millions, bringing the landscape back to life with a brilliance unimaginable as reds, yellows, oranges, pinks and whites spread outward like a thick matted carpet.
