Ilkeston - Spring
w/e 03 May 2015
All of this week's pictures were taken with a Kodak DX6490

Museum Steps

Blossom goes by many names including apple, may, cherry, almond and orange but when it puts in an appearance one thing is certain - spring is in the air! And these trees by the steps leading up to the Erewash Museum are a sure sign of spring.
Market Place

Trees are blossoming too around the fountain in the corner of the Market Place where the flag presumably to mark St George's Day on 23rd April is also still hanging in front of the Sir John Warren.
Oakwell Crescent

It's worthwhile at this time of year to walk down St Andrew's Drive to the junction with Oakwell Crescent where the trees on the triangle of land always put on a fantastic display.

So good in fact that the blossom deserves a much closer look.
Tulips & Primulas

Not far away on Oakwell Drive tulips and primulas add more colour to the season.
Recreation Ground

The colour continues in the trees on the Recreation Ground.
Bowling Green

From beneath the blossom on another tree, the grass on the bowling green is looking in good condition ready for what promises to be a fine season.
Along the Manners Link

More blossom new leaf growth and bluebells can be seen along the Manners Link footpath and the bug bear of all gardeners, the dandelions are growing in profusion.


A more literal "bug" bear is also becoming apparent again as the weather warms up and this fly on the budding leaf was soaking up the sun just of the Manners Link.
Industrial Estate

Even on the Manners Industrial Estate, there are spring flowers outside some of the industrial units.
Victoria Park

If you go out looking for signs of spring though, the obvious place is the park and this is the entrance at the Drummond Road end of Victoria Park.
