|Orchard - 19 April 2016|
The OrchardOne area that I completely neglected was the orchard. Orchards are, undoubtedly, at their most attractive in spring when the trees are covered in white blossom, like those shown in the image above.

|Apple Blossom - 8 May 2016|
A close-up highlights the delicate pinks of the buds and developing flowers which is an important feature of apple blossom.
Elsewhere in the Park

This tree, besides the main path leading past the visitor centre, is, perhaps, the most conspicuous and most noticed, in the park.
|Centre of Park - 12 May 2015|
Not all blossom is as conspicuous as the white flowers of the fruit trees. This willow trees shines bright yellow in the sunshine, not from its leaves, but from its catkins.
|Field Maple Flowers - 8 April 2016|
Similarly, the flowers of the field maple are easily missed as they are only very slightly different in colour from the surrounding leaves.
