Two photographs taken from more or less the same spot illustrating this year's late spring. The first photo was taken on 18th April 2010. Looking through my library I found the second photograph which was taken on 18th April 2007 - quite a difference!!! Looking through other blogs it seems that in this particular locality we are trailing by upto two weeks. For instance whilst other bloggers are showing bluebells there is no sign of any flower buds, never mind actual flowers. Three days of glorious warm sunshine and today we are back to square one with cloud and a very chilly wind. Better days to come hopefully!!!
