Spring sunshine

Haven't the last few days been beautiful? I've tried to make the most of it!

Last Sunday I met a friend on Martin Down - it was blowy and overcast, but hearing the skylarks, yellowhammers and a bullfinch, together with spotting the hairy violets flowering, made for a beautifully atmospheric walk. Spring is certainly here.

And this week I've managed a few evenings of walks from the flat along the Avon Valley Path - the benefit of the longer days. All the trees are in bud and the bushes are bursting into leaf with that vibrant green characteristic of this time of year. The low evening sun casts spectacular shadows and backlights delicate natural forms of reeds and brambles - common species whose beauty is often overlooked.

Let's hope this weather continues for a bit, but of course, it is England...
