New for Old!

Plenty of sunshine on Saturday and according to the thermometer it was mild but it didn't feel it on an afternoon walk around the grounds of Temple Newsam Estate in Leeds.

It was only a short walk as lots of maintenance work is being carried out to dredge the lake and the surrounding footpaths are closed until the work is completed.
Obviously this large tree didn't make it through the last storm. This is coppicing on a grand scale by natural forces. In other parts of the estate spring bulbs are starting to put on a pretty display.
The rain held off all day it was just a shame the wind was so strong. Sheltered from the strong gusty wind it was possible to think that spring might be on its way.

  1. That's a serious snap in that tree. Beautiful to see such a drift of snowdrops.
