Salts Spring 2


Another glimpse of the wonderful south elevation of Salts Mill, this time viewed from Caroline Street, across the allotments. It is wonderful to see the blossom appearing and the fresh spring green flushing through gardens and countryside. It is still very cold (we had recent hail and snow) and some hard frosts are making things suffer; the camellias seem mostly ruined already. But there is a bit more warmth in the weak sunshine and a promise in the air some days, so very welcome.

Seems Blogger has decided to change our blog backgrounds from a gentle gradation to solid blocks. I do not like. :(

  1. A good time to be working in the gardens unless its too cold still as you say. Its still summer here. It is like the weather has got stuck.

  2. Salts Mill is a fabulous piece of architecture Jenny, they really did build to last in those days. I like your perspective here and yesterday with the allotments in the foreground.

  3. I do like this perspective.

    Here it's still cool, but supposedly the temperatures are supposed to start warming up on the weekend. The tulips here could use some warmth.

  4. Such a beautiful building. I hadn't noticed any change on blogger.

  5. Nice to see some blossoms. It has been a very late Spring here, also. Almost May! We have many of these old mills being turned into apartments. I wonder how they can have cleaned them well enough after 2 centuries of use.

  6. It will soon be a bit more hidden as the tree leaves appear.
