Just 3 weeks ago there was very little foliage on the hedgerow trees and bushes, only spring flowers out in the garden and not much wildlife around. After a few days of sunny weather everything has bloomed – in the country side and in the garden.
The rape crop has appeared in a week and there are swallows darting around just above the top of the plants under a really summery sky full of cumulus. I’m going to snap this scene throughout the year this year. Next to the rape are loads of cowslips, which are having a bumper year – they are growing all over the side of the roads in Herts this year.
Some more scenes from last autumn in Weston Woods. The sunshine really brought the colours to life that afternoon although I’ve warmed the photos up a bit in Picasa too.
