After weeks of rain the last week in May is hot and sunny. Sunlight through yellow flowers, a meadow of buttercups and dandelion flowers and seed-heads. Oak catkins are almost hidden in clusters of new leaves. Purple catkins on alder show best in winter when the trees are thick with catkins and bare of foliage. By the time alder catkins flower the tree is in leaf.
Along the river bank trees interweave. We follow tree flowers back to source to match flower and fruit to tree bark. And in editing images I tease out my subject to free it from the tangle of the wild.
Wych elm has clusters of seeds forming from green flowers and branches hang over the river. A peaceful and beautiful day.
