Corylus avellana L. in bloom, the South Downs Way on a wet grey day

Observed on a very cold, grey and wet afternoon's walk on the South Downs Way starting at Queen Elizabeth Country Park, via the Sussex Border Path to Chalton and back via the Staunton Way. Camera did not want to take any photos without the flash on, which has rather bleached out the delicate green of the buds.

Morning Has Broken

Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for the springing fresh from the world
