April in Bloom

Such beautiful and dramatic seasonal changes is what makes living in the UK so great and it certainly helps to soften the blow from the inevitable rain.  As April comes around, it seems that all of a sudden hues of pink, white and every shade in between, appear as if out of nowhere.  This magnificent display of colour is such a stark contrast from the bleakness of winter from the not so distant past, with its drifts of snow and sheets of ice.

Along with the arrival of these wonderful blooms comes a gentle warmth from the sun, which is just warm enough to make picnicking a viable option for lunch.  Sitting on a blanket with a spread of sandwiches, with the scent from the magnolia flowers above and the sun finally heating my skin the tiniest bit, reminds me how glorious spring days can be and how they can expel any lingering winter blues.

  9. These pics are so beautiful - though they make me a little shame faced that I don't think I've spotted any cherry blossom trees (in bloom) yet this spring - being heavily pregnant perhaps makes that partly excusable. This is my favourite time of year - I almost love the promise of summer more than summer itself - that sense of a collective sigh of relief that the winter is over and the extra pep in everybody's step!
