Bristol: Spring Songs 2

Lots of plants are blooming in earnest now and little critters are out and about.

It was raining white petals just the other day in this very busy lane between the trees in Castle Park.

The pink ones on Bradon Hill does remind me of Micheal Dudash's work.

Something less delicate, but still intriguing. Being part of the branches, they do look like caterpillars to me.

More white beauties. Some of them carries a soft tint of yellow or pink in the middle.

And a samurai among the cherry blossoms.

This is the first time I realize how straight a squirrel can stand. And those on the Hill are doing it a lot.

Now, it would be brilliant if the weather is just as fair for the coming Easter Eggs hunt...

Bristol: Spring Songs

Here is to share some tidings of spring, English days at their glorious best.

Glistering morning dews. A wonder you can catch if you wake up early enough.

Flowers in the sun, each blooming in its time and fading in its turn.

As longer days herald the coming summer, another season draws closer to an end.

Last year about this time, I was in Aberdeen. Here is a terrier on Coronation Road to commemorate that.

Behold the flower, seed and wood, dust, ash and sand...
A blessed and joyful Easter to those who celebrates it.
