Random and Weird Phone Shots – Something’s Growing

They always grow there. Every time I go to the launderette, I load the washing machine and then go for a walk in the park while the washing’s being done. At around this time of year, I look for these violet coloured beauties, ‘cos by now I’m sooo over winter and they remind me hope is on the horizon.

I’m not being poetic here, by the way, I just have no idea what these flowers are called. Someone once told me they were crocuses. Please feel free to enlighten me in the comments.

Some October Park Shots

Most of the leaves are still green here, with bits of gold here and there. Well, it looks nice anyway, so enjoy:

It has become my custom to visit Heaton Park always on the penultimate Saturday in October and that’s where today’s pictures are from.

You can never quote any Anne of Green Gables quote too much, especially not the one about Octobers.

Outdoors, Weekly Photo Challenge

Look Up

Every other post of mine is a picture of a sky, in fact I posted one last week, so I went for something different for this week’s challenge.

Most of the time I look down, like Nancy Thanki to avoid tripping over things (glad I’m not alone). Most of the time when I do look up, it’s to take a picture. Which maybe says something, whatever that is.
