"In your well-marked footprints now I plant my resolute steps"—Lucretius—Spring blossom in the Cambridge University Botanic Garden

I'm currently re-reading Lucretius' sublime poem "On the Nature of Things" (De Rerum Natura) and this afternoon I thought I would, like Lucretius, plant my own resolute steps in the footprints of the bringer of spring, Mother Nature (Venus), and take another stroll around the Cambridge University Botanic Garden to enjoy the refulgent, life-affirming blossom that is to be found everywhere. Here are a few photos from the visit. The first two were taken with the Hipstamatic app and the remainder with the Filmborn app. As always just click on a photo to enlarge it.
