Well, Spring became one very muddy walk after another and seemed to go on forever ! The Bluebell season came and went giving a much needed display of colour.
As the weather started to improve I decided I would start exploring some of the higher paths. My first being a walk up Wolstonbury Hill. The cowslips adorned the slopes and the views were amazing . It was a raher slow walk though, the climb is very steep and not for the faint hearted !

Then, everything turned white. The Cow Parsley rose and flowered and the Hawthorn trees surpassed themselves with more blossom than I've ever seen . The South Downs were transformed into a superb landscape of lush greens and fresh white blossom.
Under blue skies and sunshine I explored some paths around Sompting and Sullington in West Sussex ....it was all rather wonderful :)

It was the view towards Cissbury Ring that really caught my eye and became my next painting ....
