Tete a tete

Daffodils, River Drive, South Shields


You know that spring is here when all the daffodils in South Shields are in full bloom. These were found in River Drive overlooking the River Tyne, you can just see the Dolly Peel statue in the left of the background. They are the dwarf tete a tete variety.

South Tyneside Council have planted 750,000 spring bulbs in and around South Shields, many of them on the main approach roads into the borough, we have already seen some of the crocuses this year in South Shields Daily Photo, and to be fair the addition of some colour as you approach the town is very welcome and uplifting after the grey days of winter.

Camera details: Pentax K100D, 28mm lens, 1/180 second, f9.5, iso 200
