With a gradual improvement in the weather over the past couple of days I wandered over to Kirkstall Hill. The fragrant blossoms of Lilac (Syringa vulgaris) and the new leaves of Common Whitebeam (Sorbus aria) stood out against the surrounding vegetation.
As the sun popped out from behind the clouds bees began to work their way around the emerging wildflowers.

St Stephens church steeple is visible through the clearing.
