I've loved reading all your comments about the Royal Wedding. It's so good to have some pleasant news to dwell on - even though it ran alongside more global natural and man-made disasters. (The devastation from the US tornadoes looks terrible.) It's a bit hard 'coming down to earth' - but here we are, the first of May already and that's my favourite month. And here's another thing this country does well..... bluebells.
Is there anything prettier than an English wood full of bluebells? Or in this case an English churchyard, since it surrounds the Church of St John the Baptist in Adel, Leeds. I tried to find an evocative quote to go with the picture, but it seems bluebells don't inspire poets, as I could only find a couple of not-very-good ones. Isn't that strange?
I was on my way to view a little gem of a garden.... more of that later.... and the walk from the car park took me this way. I was enchanted. It's only a 20 minute drive from Saltaire but I had never been here before.
