Ilkeston - The Show
Just Goes On
w/e 22 April 2007
this week's pictures were taken with a Kodak DX6490
Last week we looked at some of the multi-coloured spring flowers
in Ilkeston and the continuing fine and dry weather has resulted
in the flower show just going on and on although most of the
yellow in the image above of the Erewash Museum is actually due
to weeds. Dandelions at this stage of their growth look very
pretty but I'm sure the gardeners among us despair when their
seeds blow our way.
There's quite a lot of blossom about at the moment and this was
seen on St Andrews Drive outside the United Reformed Church.
There's blossom too near the Fire Station but whether it will
still be there in the future is debatable. Plans have been published
for a new station to be built on the same site and the fire appliances
will temporarily be based elsewhere in the town. What will become
of the blossoming plants is unknown.
The tulips pictured
last week on the traffic island at the end of Châlons
Way are now past their best but these near the entrance to the
Recreation Ground on Oakwell Drive (adjacent to the Fire Station)
are still looking a picture. Notice though those dreaded dandelions
again in the foreground and also the different shades in the
shrubbery behind the bed.
There are more colours too in the shrubs and trees between the
path onto the ground and the bowling green..
And when the view from the path opens up to reveal the pavilion,
a tree with some more beautiful blossom is just a delight to
