The story behind this image

The coronavirus lockdown of Spring 2020 found my wife Liz and I enjoying walking around our local open spaces in Buckley, North Wales, taking more time that we usually would to admire and examine the beautiful flora on display at this time of year.

The lovely calm, sunny weather brought out some gorgeous blossoms in the hawthorne hedgerows around our local common, so I took full advantage to capture those delicate flowers on camera as we took our daily exercise.
