There is lots to relish on my morning 'commute' to work. Walking is so much less stressful than any other means of getting there and I am fortunate that it is a manageable distance from home to work. I often enjoy the mix of nature and man-made elements in this urban environment. The trees in autumn always provide some colour but in the early sunshine this week I was struck by this sycamore tree (at least, I think its a sycamore), bursting with spring colour from its bright green blossom (not leaves yet). It looked amazing against the pretty blue sky and the old stonework.
