In the shade of the trees

 These photos come from my walk along the Water of Leith on Tuesday this week. The lovely yellow flower above is the lesser celandine, one of my favourite spring flowers, it comes out so early and is so lovely and bright! I like the way the ivy leaves form an arch above the celandine! Below is a wonderful shape in the trunk of a tree, I'd never noticed this before, in all of my walks along this part of the river (and I'm there every week as part of my voluntary work with the Water of Leith Conservation Trust).

That is a pretty little flower and love the delicate shadows framing it!

Isn't it amazing all the surprises that nature brings? Thank you for the lovely spring pictures. I wish I could do the same for you!

We have corkscrew willows that do winding things with their small trunks and branchs, but not as classy as that!
