May Blossom at Nottingham Castle

The weather in Britain has been glorious over the past couple of weeks, so I decided to take a stroll in the gardens of Nottingham Castle this weekend. I absolutely loved walking under the may blossom trees – it looks like spring has well and truly arrived!

The castle at Nottingham is a grand country house (unfortunately we burnt the medieval one to the ground during the Luddite revolts… *ahem*). Very little of the Robin Hood era castle remains, and one of the oldest parts of the castle is the entrance:
