Drabble: Spring In Cardiff

Title: Spring In Cardiff

Author: badly_knitted

Characters: Ianto

Rating: G

Written For: Challenge 313 – Open at tw100. Prompt used is Challenge 188: Yellow.

Spoilers: Nada.

Summary: As a patriotic Welshman, spring is Ianto’s favourite season.

Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.

A/N: My fourth drabble for this prompt.

Spring had finally arrived in Cardiff.

It was Ianto’s favourite time of year; the air was almost balmy, the sun sometimes peeped through the clouds and people started to shed their dull and heavy winter clothes in favour of something colourful. They even smiled at each other and called out cheerful greetings. It was a vast improvement over dreary winter.

Then there were the flowers. Shy snowdrops gave way to the white, purple and gold of crocuses then almost overnight the daffodils appeared, carpets of sunshine yellow dancing in the breeze.

It was a sight that always gladdened his heart.

The End


lovely images!
Thank you! I wish our daffodils had grown this year.
I'm with Ianto on this...I just love the spring. :)
Me too! There are flowers everywhere, and everything starts to get green after the drab browns and greys of winter. It's like the world is coming back to life =)

Ianto is channeling me, lol!

Thank you!
Could use a little bit of spring here.
I hope it arrives for you properly soon. We're getting a few springlike days, then colder weather again. We're not quite there yet. When it's nice, it's very nice, but the rest of the time it's still too cold.

Thank you!
A delightful read and wonderful word painting of the season and color. :D
Thank you! *hugs*

I love spring, the only thing I'm missing here is the daffodils, none of ours flowered this year.
Oh, so nicely simple and yet so evocative. Beautiful! ;-)
Thank you!

Spring is more or less here, it's v ery inspiring =)
Aww, lovely! <3
Thank you!

Spring is very inspiring, it's my favourite season =)
Thank you!

I'm like Ianto, I love the spring, everything is growing and there's sunshine and happy people =)
Beautiful imagery! I'm glad Ianto is having a lovely spring. Our spring has been somewhat anemic so far, but the flowers, including the daffodils, are trying, bless their little hearts.
Spring here is proving to be rather hit and miss. Some dayu are lovely, some are freezing and our daffodils didn't flower, but other things were lovely, including some self-set wallflowers. Even so, I love Spring best =)

Thank you.
I understand you, Ianto - I love spring too! ^_^
(Of course only the warm spring days ;D )
Spring is beautiful, it promises so much. Cold days asren't much fun though.

Thank you!
Warms the heart.
Thank you

Wish it would warm something else right now, it's chilly today.
Spring is a beautiful time of year.
It's the best time of year, but some days (like today) are still cold.

Thank you!
I feel the same about tulips. Ours are finally starting to poke up out of the ground. I'm hoping they'll be as bountiful as they were last year - we had a record number of blooms in our patch (almost 50!)
Tulips are lovely, they're not quite as common over here as daffodils though there are a lot to be seen in gardens and especially in areas that the council plants up. I just love flowers in general, lol!

Daffodils are the Welsh national flower.

Thank you!
Aww I love spring!
Daffodils are so bright and happy, and patriotic for a Welshman too :-)

(I think you may have got your flowers muddled - you say snowdrops give way to snowdrops...?)
Bugger! How did I miss that? Gotta go edit it now. Thanks for noticing my crocuses had wandered off...

Ianto is very patriotic indeed!

iantojjackh and I are neck and neck for this challenge so far - or will be when I get today's drabble up. She's slightly ahead on account of posting each day before me but I'm keeping up. I have a few more already written, I love open challenges, hope this one runs for another week!)
