First week of April and it should be spring in the UK but no sign of blossoms around here yet; this is a picture of a lone blossom bud in the grounds of Osaka Castle.

Where the Matilda is being cleaned up is a brief glimpse of the Porter Brook. The course of this river is the subject of a fabulous song in praise of Sheffield by Pulp called ‘Wickerman’.

“Just behind the station, before you reach the traffic island, a river runs through’ a concrete channel.
I took you there once; I think it was after the Leadmill. The water was dirty and smelt of industrialisationĀ Little mesters coughing their lungs up & globules the colour of tomato ketchup.
But it flows underneath the city through’ dirty brickwork conduits
Connecting white witches on the Moor with pre-raphaelites down in Broomhall”
