Ilkeston - Mainly Yellow
w/e 17 March 2019
All of this week's pictures were taken with a Kodak DX6490

We often hear talk of the colours of autumn with golds, browns and yellows being prominent as the leaves prepare for the winter but there are perhaps just as may hues in the early days of spring with various shades of yellow being predominant.

White Lion Square

The daffodils on the White Lion Square island this year have been supplemented by the yellow and white of the planting in the five circular beds.

Around the Cenotaph

Around the Cenotaph the planting has a variety of colours to brighten up the town centre but there is still a good amount of yellow although it is more towards the orange side of the spectrum.

Tete-a-Tete

Mini daffodils (Tete-a-Tete) line the steps up to the Remembrance Garden at St Mary's Church.

Church Wall

More line the wall in front of the church along with a smattering of crocuses. What these photos don't show is the force of the wind that was blowing when they were taken but fallen branches and twigs are evidence of the effect it has had.

Tulips

It's not all about daffodils, even the tulips in the garden at the church entrance are yellow.

Forsythia

And there's a fine display of forsythia by the path leading down to the Albion Centre from East Street.

Forsythia Flowers

With a gale blowing I had to hold this stem of forsythia steady with one hand whilst using the other to take the photo.

Chaucer Junior School

In the more sheltered location of Chaucer Junior School it was daffodils to the fore again.

On 'Illy 'Oleys

This display on 'Illy 'Oleys was planted a few years ago by the Council's Green Space Team ably assisted by pupils from Chaucer School. The Team incidentally are responsible for all the public display beds around the town in the parks and on the traffic islands.

Park Cemetery

They also care for the grounds at Park Cemetery but these windswept daffodils at the entrance are looking a bit the worse for wear do the the strong gusts that have been blowing all week. But whether it's cloudy or grey the yellow at this time of year adds a little bit of sunshine to our lives.
