I often think I must have one of the most pleasant commutes to work possible (in an urban area at least). It's a 15 minute walk, with three possible routes - along the main road (slightly quicker), through Salts Mill yard (often interesting) or along the canal (soothing but distracting!) At the moment, the mornings are usually very bright but quite chilly. I do think the colours the Spring wears are lovely. Bright greens and yellows look so cheery against a pure blue sky. Some of the trees seem particularly vibrant this year. I think these bright yellow-green explosions are flowers/pollen rather than new leaves, though I am not 100% sure. They seem to me to be more noticeable than I remember in previous springs - or maybe I'm just walking round with my eyes open this year.
