Yesterday we visited the Cambo estate about 20 minutes drive from St Andrews. It is famous for the snowdrops growing in the grounds. It was a beautiful warm spring day with a carpet of snowdrops everywhere you look.
Just been through all my photographs looking for the 4 seasons.

I noticed this field of rapeseed on my way to work a week ago. So last Sunday morning I parked the car off the road and wondered around the field, getting a few shots. It was still quite early and the rain drops from the night before had not evaporated yet from the leaves.
went for a brief walk in Wallace park this morning – only glimpses of blue sky but lots of bird song, more than 10 degrees and lots more evidence of (a damp) spring.
Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. “But if God so clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more will He clothe you? You men of little faith!”
I took this shot on the way around the lake at Dublin zoo last weekend. It was a grey, cold, overcast day, threatening to rain.

it’s been a beautiful weekend. Pretty warm for March – no rain and lots of blue sky. This morning it looked so good we went for a 3 mile walk just after 7am. Many of the trees in the gardens around us are starting to bloom. The birds were singing interrupted by only the occasional car.
There are also some surviving blooms indoors (thanks to M+S) in the hall from mother’s day – they are in a smaller vase now as they have been cut back and some have been discarded. They have done “what it said on the tin” which was guaranteed blooms for 7 days.
