Not really at their best yet, although I'm not really sure they will be quite as good as recent years, they have not so far bloomed in mass and the tree leaves in the woods were more in evidence when I shot them last year, perhaps the recent cold weather and lack of rain untill last week has caused them to bloom more randomly.

John Prior: I hope so, I don't think the weather is helping much.
