Trees

The flowering trees of Shipley Park, are looking pretty good right now.  Among the best - as always - are the cherry trees atop Shipley Hill.  Not just the ordinary, single flowered varieties either.  In some places, the double-flowered forms are magnificent.
When the sun shines on them of course, they are at their best.  Both the pinks....
And the white varieties...
A closer look, shows how beautiful these larger flowered, doubles really are.
The first of this year's Rhododendrons are starting to open their blousy blooms too.  These too, are much earlier flowering this year than last.  Along with the Bluebells, Cowslips, Cherry trees, Maples, etc. the floral display is quite something.
