Water lilies, but no ducks or geese here.

Favourite Place

What’s my favourite place?

The one that has unapologetically featured on this blog from the very beginning–Heaton Park in Manchester.

You feel like you’re in the middle of the woods without having left the city.

I go there in spring, summer and autumn and I always take a lot of pictures. I have more photographs from Heaton Park on my hard drive than any other place.

It’s been good doing the Weekly Photo Challenge again!

Surprise

This place–can’t call it a park, I don’t know what it is, so let’s just call it “some green place I didn’t know existed”–is just a walking distance from my house. It was a real surprise to me when I discovered it.

I like the little pathway.

It’s like a small urban jungle.

Countryside–or inner city Manchester? The latter.

It IS Easy Being Green

For this week’s photo challenge, I am posting four pictures.

Not looking very spring-like yet, but plenty of green.

Trees, of course, they can’t be missing.

Okay, so that’s not strictly green only, but everyone loves daffodils, right?

It IS Easy Being Green!

PS: Can I just say, I much preferred the Weekly Photo Challenge on Fridays. I know it technically doesn’t matter because you can post any time, but still, I liked Fridays better. And what happened to Discover Challenges on Tuesdays, they stopped doing them altogether without telling us why. I asked on Twitter but got no response…
