Spring Colours. Yellow and Red.
Yellow clover, Sweet Easter broom and Butcher's broom.

Early spring flowers start to pop up.
Melilotus officinalis, known as the yellow sweet clover, yellow melilot, ribbed melilot or common melilot is a species of legume native to Eurasia and introduced in North America, Africa and Australia. These days they bloom almost everywhere — in the birch grove undergrowth, in the garden or at the corner of the house.

Sweet Easter broom, Genista spachiana or Cytisus spachianus is a broom native to the Canary Islands, on La Palma and Tenerife.

After having taken the shot I found out that a tiny spider came into view.

I discovered that butcher's broom shrubs grow in the garden. It's a medicinal plant, since Butcher's broom tightens blood vessels and capillaries, it’s a good natural remedy for varicose veins. It enhances blood flow to the brain, legs, and hands, improves circulation, and is used to relieve constipation and water retention.
