Oh, to be in EnglandHome Thoughts from Abroad, Robert Browning
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!
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!
All photos taken in Ealing in spring 2021
