Flowers in the meadows of Switzerland

Some photos of lovely flowers in bloom, isn't it great, those colours, sometimes soft and sometimes bright?

I am reading a book about Vincent van Gogh at the moment and he is talking a lot about the colours he is using, especially the colour yellow, which symbolizes several things for him, like light in darkness and salvation.
Henri Nouwen, a well-known Dutch writer of several interesting books, describes how Van Gogh intended to make people see the compassion-solidarity and the encouragement he wanted to give through his paintings.
Makes me want to go to the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam, I have been there a long time ago, time for a new visit?
