Ilkeston - Victoria
Park on St David's Day, 01 March 2002
w/e 03 March
Pedestrians and drivers alike cannot have
failed to notice this week, the colourful displays in Victoria
Park Ilkeston where it fronts Bristol Road.
Fallen leaves from last Autumn
are apparent in this ground level shot but the purples, yellows
and whites of the flowers are the features that really catch
Recent high winds have brought
many twigs and small branches down from the trees to lie among
the crocus carpet.
Blossom on a purple leaved
plum tree is also doing its bit to brighten the spirits as Spring
And being St David's Day it
is only right that I include this image of some daffodils still
in bud but they too will soon be adding more colour to the park.
Final shot for this week is
my attempt at being artistic - the bark and a knot hole in a
silver birch tree against a soft focus parkland backdrop. OK
some you win and some you lose, I'll let you make your own minds
up about this one.
