I love walking through woods, trees present so many photo opportunities.
Lovely, nothing like a good walk in the woods.twiggy x
Hi Diane,Looks like you had a great day in Sheffield, on your recommendation we went to Derwent Valley on Sunday. Had a great day out, so if you could carry on doing your bit for The Yorkshire Tourist board we are very grateful.Vanessa x
I love your photos, I have a thing for trees! Long may the blue skies continue:-)
I was talking to hubby only yesterday about the lack of green leafy growth on the trees considering the time of year. I think it will be spectacular once they get going.
Great piccies and lovely trees. It's so nice to see them shooting, and amazing how quickly they will now change :)
Diane, you are breaking my heart. First Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet, now Ecclesall Woods. I loved all the green spaces in Sheffield when we lived there. We would walk our dog in Ecclesall Woods a few times a week. It's an amazing resource for a city known for its industrial heritage rather than its natural beauty - but as you say, it's one of the greenest cities in England. Parts of Ecclesall woods are actually 'ancient woodland'. I used to enjoy noticing the seasons pass in the woods: the daffs, then the bluebells, then the wild honeysucke and briar roses. We would forage for elderflowers, mushrooms, blackberries, elderberries and sweet chestnuts, depending on the time of year. Very happy memories for me. I'm glad you enjoyed your time in the woods, and thank you for sharing.
I love trees!Sorry about the delay with your surprise, its sunny so I'm outdoors, naughty me!!
Great photos of the trees. I love old gnarly trees. They have a character all of their own and yes, it is so nice to see the buds.Susie
A delightful stand of mature trees showing much promise for a leafy canopy in several weeks.
Great woodland photos - love the sticky-buds - reminds me of my primary school's nature table:)
oh I do miss my trips to Yorkshire.......unfortunately fat boy got custody of that particular county, but maybe one day.....
Great shot that one of the sticky bud! And what a blue sky you have there up North! xxxxx
I've never travelled outside of the USA. Seeing scenery from another country is a treat for me. Thank you for sharing your pics.AND Thanks for stopping by my blog! Feel free to visit anytime. :-)
Hi Diane,I miss walking in the woods/bush. Space is at a premium in Guernsey so space for woodland walks is not that common; this coupled with the fact that the Nazis chopped down all the trees for firewood during their five year occupation.Thanks for stopping by – we did have a lovely trip and it was wonderful to see family; the kids really miss it. We didn’t get to Salford Quays but there is always next time.Take care,GillianX
I am saying 'hi' because I just stumbled upon your blog. Lovely tree pics -an obsession of mine, as is Yorkshire because I grew up there (Leeds) in the late 40s /early 50s. Am commenting from a campsite in the Somerset Levels where to my surprise I have wifi access. Will read back through your posts when I am home.
I look forward to seeing the comparison. It looks like a wonderful place.Happy weekend,jj
I quite like that tree the wrong way round !
ooo what wonderful photos!!! xxx
