April is a coming in

March roared like a lion all right. Days of wind, rain, hail stones and cold nights. However, the first few days of April have seen sunshine return and even warmth. Will it last?

Here are some recent shots of the 'fresh shoots of spring' taken on 3rd April 2008.

Emerging Daisies Bellis perennis

Blackthorn Prunus spinosa flowers

Ornamental cherry tree Prunus species

Alder tree Alnus glutinosa

A patch of bright Celendines Runuculus ficaria 

To come: You haven't seen anything yet! The potential that lies in the Ouseburn valley.
