In the Park



Photo by Margaret


Robin observes from the safety of a bamboo hedge




Snowdrop blooms are passing  ..........




.............  and a profusion of crocuses take their place








Emergent Birch catkins.



Ducks creating wave patterns on the pond














I like the circular hole in this bronze sculpture, it brings lightness to
an otherwise heavy form.



Thank you for visiting

Great serie ! Your water reflections are superb, but I really felt in love with your first pic, with the robin in front of the bambous : what a terrific picture !

Isn't it strange to see the flowers allready? The season is 6 weeks to early here. We have daffodils and buts in the trees as it isn't even spring yet. Still high temperatures for weeks now is very unusual. Nature is confused and we too.

Lovely signs of Spring. Happy SWF!

The robin stands out so well against the bamboo. And such a profusion of crocuses! I haven't seen any around here yet but then, it's always 3 degrees colder here.

Everything is so beautiful about this post, but the patch of crocuses and the robin steal my heart.
Thank you for making my Sunday morning. :-)

I'm surprised such early arrival of spring in your place. Snowdrops or crocuses I see after an interval of one year give excited mood.Thank you sharing.
Have a lovely week!

I love the bird inthe park.

Midori said...

How lovely to see spring has sprung over there, too! The robin is so adorable against the bamboos! : )

cosmos said...

Robin looks perfectly fits in the bluish bamboo hedge. How adorable!
I feel shiny hues of spring filled in your pictures!
"We prize any tenderness and softening in the winter, catkins,birds, birdnests..." I learned this quote from Thoreau at another blogger's post. Come to think of it, I've seen lots of flowers dangling from alder katkin boughs in early spring.
I was wondering what they were.

That does look a lot like spring.

The fuel consumption of cars is such an issue - but half way up the A1 on a wet and windy night I think a car with an engine larger than an egg beater does have a certain appeal!

Tomoko said...

Wow,there are so many spring signs inspiring me. Love to see many crocuses blooming. The water pond looks cold, but it must be a good habitat for the birds.
Enjoy your day.

You've shared some lovely photos of spring. I live in S. Calif. so the seasons kind of blend into each other with little drama. Your images remind me of the glory of nature when spring happens.

W parku oprócz pięknych wiosennych kwiatów, był mój ulubieniec rudzik. Pozdrawiam.
In the park, in addition to beautiful spring flowers, was my favorite Robin. Yours.
