Spring Flowers in Saltburn


 

As the sign says - ' Welcome to Saltburn '

Saltburn By-the-Sea - my local seaside town just 2 miles from home

Spring has sprung and the early flowers are in bloom - I hope you enjoy looking at them
- I'm sorry I can't bring into your homes the perfumes that fill the air . . .

 

.

The flowers are displayed in all kinds of 'containers' - from old carts . . .

 

.

. . . to the coble boats which, in years gone by, will have brought many a good 'catch' back to shore

 

The peaceful Italian Valley Gardens, appealing at all times of the year . . .

 

.

. . . especially now and in high summer

 

.

Admittedly, the bedding plants are very attractive, but you can't beat the natural beauty of wild flowers

 

.

Near the War Memorial we enjoy another wondeful display . . .

 

.

. . . and a little further along even more glorious colours in front of the old Zetland Hotel

 

Looking down from the top of the cliff-lift to the lottery-funded, ongoing repair work to Saltburn Pier . . .

 

. . . and from the beach

 

Looking in the opposite direction towards Hunt Cliff . . .

 

. . . and from here, including the Ship Inn

 

On the way home, near the entrance to Rushpool Hall . . .

 

.

. . . a lovely show of daffodils
