The Park on the 28th: May - Late Spring #Trees #Nature

The park where I go for my walks, photos taken in roughly the same places on the 28th of each month, to observe the changes in seasons: the trees, the flowers, the light in the sky - and the weather!  Each month seems to have its own 'feel', no matter if it's rainy, sunny, overcast, warm or cold on that day.

A few days ago I walked this same trail and some of my favourite parts were beautifully overgrown; I really hoped that the council gardeners wouldn't come along and cut it all down in the meantime, but thankfully they didn't!  It's all so verdant now; lovely.  I admit to taking these on the 26th this month; the weather's been so awful lately that I looked at the weather forecast and saw it had big black clouds all over the 27th and 28th, so I went out on Sunday instead.  For once, the forecast was correct; I got soaked when out this morning!

Lost my glasses around here; alas, I needed them to find them...

These trees were bare for so long; 
how lush they look now 😊

New this month ~ the laburnum :)

The tree that turns bright red in the autumn

 I stood under these trees in a mass of pink blossom last month!

~ love the wild flowers ~


Amazing smell walking past here; 
reminded me of childhood country walks. 😌


This is the stump of the tree that fell down in October.


Taken in roughly the same place as the pics 
of me taken in Sept and Oct - big difference.

    1. Every time I've walked down the road in the sunshine this month, I've thought about that.

    1. Ah, it's just a normal park in any-town.... but I spot the magical bits. And trees are always so!

  4. Stunning again, Terry. I love it how, after what seems so long through the Winter, that Spring takes control with a firm hand and life returns with such an amazing explosion of colour.
