April was a real mixed bag of weather from warmth to snow and a profusion of April Showers – sunshine one minute, pouring rain the next. How trees, plants and flowers make sense of this is a mystery but they do, although sometimes they misjudge and get frost-nipped. May has now arrived and the temperature is set to climb sharply as the week progresses.
I haven’t got out as much as I would have liked to record the arrival of Spring this year – moving to a new area means that the best woods for photography need to be discovered and investigated and that takes time.
However we do have areas of woodland very close to where we live – a small bluebell wood is a two-minute walk away, and a nature reserve can be reached by car in five minutes and those are the locations of today’s images.
