Rainy Morning

It rained during the night, first rain for over a week, so everything is looking fresh and green.

Ring road Tramp

Cherry tree on the ring road. It was on the central reservation, in this area, that an elderly man 'Fred' lived in a tent for many years.

There's a larger number of Police in the city centre these days probably due to a general election and visits from various politicians.

Cloudless blue sky, lovely warm days and everything greening up. What's not to like about this April? ( Well, I could do with a little rain to water my newly planted perennials, never satisfied am I?)

Unwelcome Visitor

Squirrels and Wood pigeons are a pest on the bird table, clearing it in a matter of minutes. I chase them away to give the small birds the chance of a meal.

The trees are starting to green up now after several warm days and more blossom is coming out. This was Waitrose car park this morning.

Birches Farmhouse

All that remains of Birches farm, the land being sold off in the 1920s for a housing estate.

Yet another Pound shop has opened on Dudley street. This one is a bit different as it seems to be selling only hats and accessories. Seems to be popular though.

Robin on the bird table. I think they may be feeding young as they are going off with beaks full of food.

Dudley Street

Sunny Saturday morning in April. The sun may be shining but still no leaves on the trees.

Reflections in my garden pond. Lots of frog spawn on the left although the frogs have departed to where ever they spend the rest of the year.

My Camera-shy Self Portrait

I do a lot of knitting, for myself, family and charity. As I suffer from cold feet, warm woolen socks are the answer.
