New green hawthorn leaves
14/52

Also 7 ~ Green for the Flickr group 52 in 2014

It was a warm but damp and drizzly day. However, I did venture out this afternoon for a bit of exercise and to take photos.

Here are some new, bright green hawthorn leaves sprinkled with raindrops.

I walked along the old railway that is now the Mawddach Trail.

Not far from home, I saw the first local lambs of the year. The farmers round here in North West Wales tend to lamb quite late. The ewes give birth outdoors, so we don't see lambs until April.

Re: these pix...

There are quite a few trails in Britain that were originally railway lines. They're great for cycling because there are never any steep hills. :)

Green indeed! I've heard they're looking at converting an old goods line through Sydney into an elevated walkway. Will be interesting to see it if they do.

Beautiful! Even without the sunshine, so very green... It really does feel like spring now.

Ravishing, especially that first. I want to *eat* them.

Feel free to post as many cute lamb photos as you desire. :) I will make no effort to stop this trend.
