Today Crafty Green Boyfriend joined me for my volunteer patrol of Colinton and Craiglockart Dells along the Water of Leith. The Spring flowers were beautifully in bloom!
There seem to be more lesser celandine than ever along this whole stretch of the walkway
the one patch of wood anemones beside the main path seems to be expanding, this is just a few of the flowers
and my favourite larch tree continues to bloom beautifully, the tips of the petals now just turning a lovely purple
There's a lovely array of daffodils in Spylaw Park
and the ramsons (wild garlic) are starting to bloom
Lots of birds were singing today, and we had a great view of a kingfisher, though the photos didn't come out.
