The other evening the spring sun was low in the sky and I couldn’t resist taking some back-lit pictures of new leaves on the street trees of the city.
I have already written about wonderful autumn leaves but they are also at their most glorious when they first open in spring.
It’s interesting seeing those flowers on the copper beech, as I failed to spot them last year when I was doing my Wildlife Through the Year blogging. Clearly I was looking for them, and the beech fruits or mast, too late in the year. I was looking for the fruit in October.
As well as the great trees, there is also new growth on plants in the garden…
