An Elder and her young..

This baby was born within the Elder at the bottom of the garden and iv watched as mum and dad looked after him until he was all grown up and ready to fly the nest, what an amazing gift Mother Nature is...

Blooms are heavy

I love the trees at the moment so full of colour. I don't know the name of this tree, maybe when the leaves are in full bloom i will know the species. Not long now til the Hawthorne flowers then i know we are on the way to summer and Beltane has finally arrived!

The heavy scent

I love the way this picture has come out! A sure sign that summer is on her way.. This was taken at my local Park within the City, at the time a Robin was playing in the branches, well, that was until i came along.

I can't tell you the name of this tree but its stunning at the moment with its yellow 'pussywillow' type flowers, later this will have beautiful pink blossem, that will almost give you the sense thats its snowing.

Last of the Winter

These last few winter trees were taken at the same place near my local City in February and since spring is a matter of weeks away and the first signs are already showing I'm putting these up. All the pictures from now will depict the first signs of Spring. Iv noticed the Hazel has its pussy willow and the Elders are showing their buds, so its time to take the camera out again.

Winters End

Soon, these trees will change and i look forward to capturing their Spring attire. Another tree from my neighbourhood, this one is situated in an alley that's opposite my home, and boy this trees Spring attire is breath taking beautiful. Tomorrow I'm heading to a big park with lots of ancient Oaks, some even have home makers within them.

The one thing that attracts me to trees without their leaves on in the winter months, is how you are able to see the vast amounts of bird dwellings. There are so many, and i love guessing which bird made which nest. This particular tree was taken in St. James Park. I often see a couple of Ravens sitting in this tree, so i wonder if this nest has been made by them and used year after year.

Imbolc Tree

Taken at the grounds of Gloucester Cathedral last weekend. We had lots of snow, but that soon turned to slush!!

Here is a Blackbird sitting in a Sycamore tree, and to the left is an Elderberry tree complete with last years nest. This photo was taken in my own garden.

I call this tree the Dogwood, only because if you look very closely you will see a red hint to the branches, truth be known, I'm not sure what type of tree this is, but the picture was taken a few weeks ago at my local Church yard that backs onto a park.
