Tree Year

The cherry trees, even the pink ones, are already mostly past their best, I took the above photo by the Water of Leith yesterday, while the photo below goes back a few days more, when they were still at their best.

I finally managed to get a decent photo of the male hornbeam catkins, see below, this is on one of the hornbeams in the group along the Water of Leith, that I photographed in this post.

And finally, this is an apple tree in the 'Hidden Meadow' near Redhall Gardens along the Water of Leith. I took the photo yesterday, and the air was full of birdsong and the sun was shining beautifully. A perfect Spring day.

Exquisite photos!
The best I've seen of the hornbeams.

Beautiful blossoms. Ours are beginning to fade and fall this week.

I love your blossom! I fear though that it has all come so early this year - but a bumper show, all the same.

That's beautiful, thanks for sharing.

Cherry blossoms are one of my favorite parts of spring.
