Whether it is out on a walk or simply by keeping an eye on your own garden, the good weather has seen the beauty of nature come to the fore.

Spectacular colours and beautiful patterns abound and Bolton News Camera Club members have been in their element recording some of the blooms and blossoms in and around the area.

Here we have a selection of just seven of them.

If you would like top be a member of the camera club and se our photographs featured both in the Bolton News and online, search for Bolton News Camera Club on Facebook.
