Yellow Carpet – Spring in Islamabad
It's that time of the year again - spring is in the air !
And with spring come the yellow flowers that carpet any green patch they can find. I'm sure these flowers have a name but I'm no expert. All I know is that these hardy, cheerful flowers turn up every year on the first whiff of spring. They grow up everywhere - you can find them on the green patches on the sides of the roads, in parks, almost anywhere.
Whatever the headlines say, whatever the state of the economy, the flowers are always there.
No fuss, no grand entrance, no stage fright, nothing complicated. Like so many things in nature, they enter stage on cue, do their bit, and leave quietly to return next year.
Simple, uncomplicated, unassuming and beautiful. Not a bad way to live !
