First Blooms of Spring 2017

There was the briefest of breaks in the cold spring weather on Sunday afternoon and we walked to the park which is nearest to our home. The Cherry Blossoms were just starting and a new variety of Tulips was just coming into its own.

During the winter months I am totally uninspired to even think about photography, but the minute I see a blossom, I am charging up the camera battery and heading out to capture some colour after many months of nothing but grey.

Standing under a Cherry Tree in full bloom is a delight like few other things in nature. This year there is not as much pink in the blossoms, but they are heavy and prolific on the branches. I guess we have a year of quantity over quality.
