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
- 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
