Seasons in the Park: April 2016

I was hoping that I wouldn’t degenerate this challenge into shots of all the pretty flowers out this month.

But looking over my photos that’s exactly what I’ve done. Except for this monster, the Giant Rhubarb or Gunnera manicata.

This is how it looked on a cold rainy day in March.
Gunnera, giant rhubarb But by late April it looked more like this…

I guess he was wondering what on earth I was taking a photo of, but he must have figured it out as he started snapping away once he got down underneath the plant!
