Spring Flowers

I know I promised you photos of my new gown and fish (how often do you get to say that???), but I havn't got round to taking them yet. I will also be writing shortly on the appalling lack of proper etiquite in English bowling alleys, but I've been too busy. In the meantime you may amuse yourselves with these images I snapped around campus in the lovely spring sunshine.



Pink hyacinth in front of the cathedral:



A hillside covered in wild primrose:



A magnolia tree and daffodils behind the Russian Studies department:



Magnolia stellata somewhere on campus:



Flowering quince somewhere on campus:

'Salacious tidbits'? You do set the bar high.

All I wanted to say was, the white stuff is Magnolia Stellata, and the red stuff is Chaenomeles Japonica. Aka Flowering Quince.

Well, that certainly got me hot and bothered.

Spring does indeed appear to have sprung.

lovely - lifts the spirits, an early spring one of the few benefits of global warming, lets hope we don't get late frosts destroying everything.
