Gallery: April in Ealing

Oh, to be in England
Now that April’s there,
And whoever wakes in England
Sees, some morning, unaware,
That the lowest boughs and the brushwood sheaf
Round the elm-tree bole are in tiny leaf,
While the chaffinch sings on the orchard bough
In England – now!

Home Thoughts from Abroad, Robert Browning

I have no photos of chaffinches to share this April. But this is cherry blossom (sakura) month in London, and it has been a wonderful spring for blossom on the street trees of Ealing.

So here, instead of chaffinches are some of my favourite photos of them, and a few other flowers thrown in for good measure. All shared for this week’s Lens-Artists Challenge theme of Colourful April. Although, I have to confess, a couple of these photos were taken at the very end of March!
