March 31st 2018: After heavy rain overnight and this morning the very small and normally tranquil River Corve turned into a torrent and burst its banks close to the home of Tony Sargeant. Flooding across the fields just below his Shropshire home. The normal river course is at the top line of trees parallel with the road and then coming across the very top of the picture from right to left. This morning the River Course could not contain the water draining off the Shropshire hills and overflowed the banks and across the fields

Spring Sunshine in Shropshire and Snowdrops

Standard

IMG_5900 ps

Well not really but these harbingers of Spring are very beautiful and welcome. Photographed by Anthony J Sargeant on 25th February 2018 the bank of this Shropshire lane is carpeted with snowdrops like so many others around his home. The trees are still bare of leaves and will be for some weeks to come and the weather is still very cold. But the snowdrops are exceptionally profuse growing in the wild all along the banks and hedgerows along the lanes and byways in this part of Shropshire.

This photograph was taken by Anthony J Sargeant at 17.11 hr on the 27th January 2018. There was a fabulous rose sky with brisk winds moving the clouds across the sky as the sun set below the horizon. The photograph was taken from the garden of Tony’s Shropshire home looking out across the sheep pastures that surround the house towards a lone oak tree standing in an ancient and now neglected hedgerow.

Anthony J Sargeant took this photograph from the bedroom window of his Shropshire home on 28th September 2017 at 6.38 am. Wonderful English changing seasons – variety and beauty though short winter days will soon arrive – the compensation will be the translucency of the landscape as the deciduous trees drop their leaves.

Wonderful Shropshire Countryside

Anthony J Sargeant took this photograph during an early morning bike ride along the Shropshire lanes close to his Home. In the distance is the Brown Clee Hill with mist still clinging to the fields below the top. The sun just clearing the horizon at 5.42am sends shafts of gold onto the field beyond the gate (27th August 2017, Shropshire, England)

Spring Snowflakes on a Sunny Sunday in Shropshire

Anthony J Sargeant thought the reader might like the alliteration – they look like snowdrops but flower slightly later in early spring in England (today is 2nd April 2017). It has been a beautiful Spring day. (Spring Snowflakes – Leucojum vernum)
