A bitter wind kept us from getting too warm this morning despite the sunshine. But as we walked along Slack Lane towards Mapperley Village, the Gorse flowers were bright and cheerful and giving off a slight scent of coconut.

Onward past Mapperley Reservoir - still looking decidedly muddy - and up Shipley Hill to check on the Snowdrops and Daffodils. On the Southern slopes of the hill in the part which was known as 'Shoulder of Mutton Wood' in bygone days, the daffodils were looking pretty good.
Like last year, there seem to be a large number of plants without flower buds, but those that have flowers make up for those that don't.
 One more photo before we turn for home and a warming cup of coffee.
