A lovely sunny day and my first time to try my new lens for the camera out. So I got some pictures to cheer you up, hopefully! There are too many to put on at once so I will do it in stages for all to see.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I have done taking them at a long distance.
Spring is bearing new life, from a horrible winter.
Regards.
Neil.

The sun was wonderful to see today, warm and dry put and things in flower now at last in abundance after getting stopped for two weeks because of the cold weather.
So to cheer everyone up I went out and got some pictures, and there are more to come.
See what you think.

Beautiful Spring Flowers, Neil! Hurray! Thanks for posting these for us! I wish I could swipe that Purple & Yellow Pansy right off the screen, & just plop it in my flowerbed, which looks rather 'lost' or something right now... I love those 2 colors together! Rolling my eyes. I used to have one of those yellow Forsythia shrubs, but it pooped-out after about 3 years--- not enough sun where it was, I think... or maybe it's too humid here? Confused Some of England's bulb-type flowers just won't grow here--- not cold-enough, or too humid, or something... We're sort of Sub-Tropical, here on the Coast. Where I used to live, in the Rio Grande Valley (far South, by the Border of Mexico) we were Tropical, with Citrus Trees, etc.
Have a Good Morning, Everyone! =)

Neil, splendid pics! Could I have that little Acer?--- actually, never mind... it would probably just die here in the South, gets tooo hot in Summer... but I sure do like Jap. Maples. Also, all the Blue & Purple flowers are my fav.! Whistling
