The beauty of spring….

We are experiencing beautiful warm, spring weather and with it comes Mother Nature’s bounty….always a magnificent surprise.

I took the following photographs yesterday on the way to my Mother’s nursing home….

Magnolia blossoms….some of my favourites – Brief but glorious.


I am fortunate to live in a very leafy part of greater London  – with beautiful parks and the Thames River close by.



This is part of the garden that surrounds the Nursing Home where my Mother now lives.  It backs onto Busy Park, which once was the hunting grounds of King Henry VIII.     The deer found today in Busy Park, are direct descendants of the original deer put there by King Henry – for his pleasure:)


I came back via Hampton Church and the River….The daffodils have been blooming for quite some time and so shortly will go to sleep until next year.


This blossom in the churchyard, shows the river beyond.

The lighting at this time of year is particularly beautiful.    Everything is so fresh and alive.


I finish with a magical hummingbird drinking the sweet nectar of life from a magnolia blossom.
