It's not just the cherry trees, though these look lovely still, despite the recent rain - these are along the wetland wildlfower meadow planted by Water of Leith Conservation Trust near the site of Bog's Mill
Some cherry trees are only just starting to flower, like this bird cherry in the Hidden Meadow
There are Spanish and hybrid bluebells here as well as native British bluebells. Those above are possibly native or more likely hybrid.
The larch flowers are steadily developing into cones, this is what they look like this week
And the wild garlic (ramsons) is in bloom in much of the Dells
And the air is full of birdsong, it really is Spring!
