April - Spring is in the Air

Post by MikeT » Tue Apr 02, 2019 5:09 pm

So far this April in Sheffield, we've had cloud, rain, hail a few minutes ago, and now bright sunshine. With sun on the daffodils, it's clearly spring, even if it does feel a bit chilly.

So this month's theme is 'Spring is in the Air'.

What pictures do you have that fit with spring? It could be new growth, buds, flowers - or anything else that suggests that 'Spring is in the Air'.

Some April Spring photos to start:

A lot of my succulents are showing loads of new growth but my cactus is really pretty with its pink and white buds
