Today's bright sunshine and gentle breeze made the spring trees and shrubs look very fresh and colourful against the gorgeous blue sky. 

This colourful Judas Tree/Cercis Siliquastrum has very a strange but beautiful growing habit - as seen below!

The colour of the river in the background looks quite murky compared to the fresh green of these new leaves.

The humble dandelion/pis en lit(!) is very beautiful in full bloom, above, and in its stunning seedhead form below!  


Above - a pair of pretty little goldfinches/chardonnerets élégants enjoying a bathe in the stream.

 Below - soaring high above them one of a pair of magnificent osprey/balbuzard pecheur.  An amazing sight when they hover - just like kestrels but much bigger!
