Today, I have marshalled a small portfolio of colourful images of Spring comprising a variety of blossoms and blooms ranging from soft whites to vibrant pink to blue and yellow.  Most came from a public park in Glasgow with the cowslips found in a near a castle in the east of Scotland. Nice to see these colours heralding change of season, and most welcome after the coldest winter on record! Read more on Springtime in Glasgow, Springtime in Scotland…



In course of last few days unusual seasonal weather patterns have resulted in the coldest November winter spell for 18 years.  Ice and snow has come in from the East resulting in large dumps of snow across various parts of the U.K. (particularly Scotland).  Compared with some parts of the country, Glasgow has fared relatively well although still experiencing heavy snowfalls and sub zero temperatures.
