Going down to the park

The joy of seeing swollen tree buds and deep blue skies again!
 I live in the city but enjoy the parks
and the biggest one is only 20 minutes away on foot.

As I walked down the hill, I could see wild flowers growing in the grass

and I smiled at the enthusiasm of this little flower peeping out of a crack in a wooden fence!

I saw these blue beauties under trees in the park.

The fountain creates such a peaceful sound and birds use it to drink from
 and sometimes take a bath in a ruffle of joyful feathers!

Just look at that glorious splashing water!

A whole bank of daffodils soak up the sun

with an attractive building at the end of the flowery alley.

The daffodil, sunshine petals that make me feel alive and happy!
Are you enjoying sunshine now too?
