SPRING



I took this picture a few years ago when we were working our allotment, it has always been one of my favourite pictures.  I only used a small finepix camera but the light must have been just right.
It is a Horse Chestnut Tree.



Just a few day later this was how it looked with the beautiful new leaves appearing.
These pictures epitomise Spring for me.

  1. Oh WOW! I have never seen anything like this! We live in an area called The Tree Streets, but we do not have any of these. These two pictures say it all, you took each one at the absolute perfect time! What a treat to see today!!!

  4. What detailed photos you have shared. I love to see the buds appearing, once they start they seem to grow so quickly
