I love cherry blossoms: possibly not as much as the Japanese, but it’s always one of the main changes which herald the true arrival of spring. After a couple of mediocre springs, this year has seen a glorious and very welcome explosion of floral colour in the trees, hedgerows and flowerbeds. Wonderful, unless you suffer from hayfever …
These particular trees are in the elegantly-manicured grounds of Huddersfield Crematorium, and hopefully provide some enjoyment and positivity to those who have to visit the grounds on more sombre occasions.

It’s been a fairly harsh winter, so it was a welcome sight to stumble across this hidden glade filled with snowdrops in Studley Royal Park. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many snowdrops in one place before … wonderful!
