Bluebells and willows


A little further along my canalside walk....
You can see the bluebells here, carpeting the woodland between the Leeds-Liverpool Canal and the River Aire.  At this spot, the river is bordered by weeping willow trees, which are such a pretty shade of light green at this time of year.  I think this is actually part of someone's garden - lucky them!

  1. I was hoping you'd show the carpet of bluebell! And I agree, weeping willows in fresh green are lovely.
