Up in the Lake District and a little less hectic than Lake Windermere is Derwentwater, hard by the town of Keswick. I was up there a while ago, back in the days before things went askew.
A favourite area of mine to travel to is West Yorkshire. A favourite town there is Huddersfield. A short walk up the hill from the railway station is Greenhead Park, I have a soft spot for town parks. Especially the Victorian ones, often created as green lungs for the workforce to enjoy on their day away from the workplace.
At last the year is slowly feeling like it’s getting into gear. The little hints are there, daylight is no longer packing its bags for the day mid afternoon and plants and the like are beginning to shuffle off the winter inertia and jiggle back into life. The queue at my bird table is livening up as well and I’ve already had a couple of adventurous bees bumbling around the few spring flowers that have made the brave decision to open.
