The Season Moves on -a Visual Observation
Observations from a Lancashire Country Man
Here in the U.K. and especially in the north of England the weather has been dry with sunnier spells but accompanied by a cold northerly wind for most of the time. However, it does not seem to have halted nature's steady march towards summer. While out and about over the last week I have photographed some of natures natural beauty which has turned the black and white of winter into a technicolor world of new cycles of life. The hub is also a visual contrast of landscapes and flora which have changed dramatically in just a few short weeks.
Bridge over the stream
Three weeks ago I took this picture of the Dryad's saddle fungi, today the 16th May it is amazing the amount of grow that has occurred in this period. The markings on this species reminds me of the feather markings on a bird of prey.
Out and About
Below are photographs taken while out and about on forays.

Finally my constant companion Katy enjoying the bluebells. "old faithful" accompanies me on all my forays in to the countryside.
