Spring Has Come to Cannizaro Park

I went to Cannizaro Park early today to take pictures in the morning sunlight, and it was very lovely, I hope the photos have captured this.

The season is changing from early spring to the first warm days of spring, and the park is looking greener and lusher now. The last of the daffodils are in bloom, while the first bluebells have already opened. The Sunken Garden is beginning to look rather colourful, too.

  4. Cannizaro Park is a hidden gem, I totally recommend a visit. It's unfortunately a bit difficult to get to, but that's probably why it is what it is ;)
