flowers and stone walls

Why is it that spring flowers look so much prettier next to a stone wall?  Chilly spring weather in Wales and Scotland didn’t slow down the spring blooms.  Maybe they get a little extra warmth from the re-radiation of heat from the stones in the walls next to them.

Well, the daffodils aren’t right next to the wall, but there are lots of stone in this shot…

Hadrian's wall, England

But there were no spring flowers planted next to Hadrian’s Wall near Carlisle, England. This monumental construction across the narrowest width of England measured 73 miles long, 10 feet wide, and 20 feet high — built in 2nd century A.D. to keep the “barbarians” out of Roman-occupied Britain.
