Morning river walk

I planned to wake up early on Sunday morning as the weather app promised a sunny start of the day. I was up at 7.30am, cycled to River Thames then locked the bike to the railings and went on a stroll along the river heading West. There is a very nice path going along and in few places there are steps which take you down to the gravel”beach”. I have not been on this side of the river for a while and there has been lots of trees cut down and cleared away from the bank. It made the view wider and more open. You can easily spot Fulham Football Club stadium. Further down the banks get wilder and more exciting with all the greenery. Lots of trees are still quite bare but horse chestnuts and weeping willows were shining with fresh green leaves in the morning sun. I have spotted some lovely spots filled with spring wildflowers like cuckoo flowers, three cornered leeks, ground ivy, alexanders, some type of wild cabbage plants and they all will be featured in the next wildflowers post. There is quite a lot of them now and the list is getting longer. I will combine March and April wildflowers so stay tuned.
