From our walks around Shipley Park over the last week or so, we have been afforded some lovely views, so I thought it only good manners to share them.  To start with some views across open farm land towards Mapperley Woods and Shipley Hill.  The first shot, taken through the hedge of Hawthorn and, in the foreground, a small Mountain Ash or Rowan (Sorbus aucuparia).
More Hawthorn is visible in the next picture and not only in the hedgerow closest to us, but also in the woodland edge across the field, all in full bloom with millions of small, white flowers
Millions more small, white flowers are to be seen in the foreground of the next picture, but here, they are of the Cow Parsley (Anthriscus sylvestris).
While on the subject of 'Cows', the herd of Holstein cattle which populate the nearby fields, were also rather photogenic as they enjoyed the sunshine and fresh, Spring grass.
A few were more inquisitive than the others.
