Spring's soft colours


Like a lot of places across the world, England seems to have been under a deluge of rain this last week or two.  Ironically, shortly before that, hosepipe bans were introduced due to the prolonged drought... I think hosepipe bans must be a kind of rain dance!  Anyway, the rain does help nature's Spring growth spurt and, in the brief bright interludes, everywhere is looking rather pretty.  Here is Saltaire's church, peeping sweetly through the blossom.

  2. Strangely enough, Spring is struggling in this neck of the woods. This is a welcome, colourful reminder of how it should be.
