Spring in Cheltenham

By Glostopcat  
A set of images taken at the beginning of the week in Cheltenham when we had unseasonably warm weather and the temperature hit 23 degrees.
V1 - Montpellier Gardens at lunchtime on Tuesday when I was working in the area
V2-V3 - Blossom on the Island where the High Street joins College Road and the bottom of the road where I live
V4 - Taken late last March in Pittville Park, you can see the lake and Pump Rooms famous for their foul tasting spa water in this image, as well as a glorious display of daffodils growing beside the lake
V5 - The spectacular display of daffodils growing on the island at Pittville Circus

V4 is fun - quirky in a gentle sort of way.
Your trees are way ahead of ours.

Unfortunately he looked round just as I was taking the shot, it was difficult to get a clear view of the lake as people and their dogs kept on walking past!

What a display of spring blossoms in Cheltenham, Ed, so wonderfully displayed in this set.
Yes, you got sussed out in V 4.....usually what happens to me too if I point my lens at folk, so that I tend to be diffident about doing so.
And a big thanks for all your wonderful and supportive comments today.
Regards,
Ronnie.

Cherry blossom is one of my favourite sights Ed, although I would have to say version four is my favourite image of this set, very well composed and plenty to look at.

Weather set to change this week, temperatures set to plummet and its back to the usual cold and wet no doubt!

Each of these is SUCH a treat for the eyes, Ed. Breathtaking. The light is gorgeous, for one thing.

That view of the daffodils in V5 is amazing but what really gets me are those white blossoms. What a sight!

By the way, thank you sooo much for your tip top User Award, good sir Smile
