Spring in Saltaire....There's blossom everywhere. It's interesting how everything had a slow start because of the hard winter we had in these parts - but once the weather improved it's as though everything is racing to catch up. Isn't Nature marvellous? And not only is there blossom, but also pollen and lots of those tiny little flying wisps of seeds. The canal is covered in them and there were mounds of them along the driveway to Salts Mill, looking like cotton wool... or like my house when I don't dust for ages (often!) The only trouble is, it's all making me sneeze!
I like the way the gentle spring light softens the stone of Salts Mill - and the counterpoint of the delicate blossom against the chiselled architecture.
