An amazing spectacle
A walk along the Suffolk Coastal Path in the warm Spring sunshine. Life cannot get much better! The scents and aromas of the seaside flora was intoxicating with freshly flowering swathes of red and white dog rose adding to yellow masses of gorse and the first blooms of honeysuckle. The bluebells are in abundance, but probably just past their best. Walking back along the sea shore (from Thorpeness) the dog roses formed an amazing spectacle (like a waterfall) down a disused cliff footpath. It resembled a lava flow, or glacier of green foliage and red blooms!
Next week sees the return of Spring Watch to the RSPB Wildlife Reserve at Minsmere (just three miles north along the coastal path). Tune in to BBC over the next few weeks to see some of our near neighbours!
