Beginnings

Walking around Mapperley reservoir yesterday, it was clear to see the beginnings of Spring all around. Not least of which was the appearance of the lily pads in the reservoir. These were being ignored by the Mallards who seemed more interested in the prospects of a bread bag.
Walking back and the footpaths were lined with high hedges of Hawthorn and Gorse of which the Gorse is magnificently covered in flowers at the moment.
In the darkness of the wooded areas, the Bluebells are just beginning to show some colour. A few flowers are opening, but most are still tightly closed, promising greater things later.
