Blossom

After a day of enforced sloth due to the dreadful weather yesterday, it was nice to get out and about again this morning.  Still rather chilly, but at least dry again, we set out for a brief walk through Shipley Park, before heading into town.
The trees and bushes have taken a bit of a battering in the strong winds, rain, sleet, snow and cold temperatures, but the Cherry Trees are still putting on a brave show.
At one point, we even noticed a small patch of blue sky, but it didn't last long.
At a lower level, the small, yellow flowers of the Coltsfoot (Tussilago farfara) are also doing their best to raise the spirits despite the bad weather.  Lets hope things improve again now that yesterday's storm has passed and we're able to get out a bit more.
