The Old Orchard, York Gate


I'm not around much this week, so over the next few days I'm going to show a series of photos of the beautiful garden at York Gate, Adel, Leeds (about 8 miles from Saltaire).  It's so lovely that it needs few words to explain it and can almost be treated as a visual meditation.  Enjoy!
