Back from the North . . .
I have been MIA for a couple of days, as I had to take our eldest daughter back home after she was unwell here on Sunday, and unable to travel. Which is why yesterday evening, we were looking across the tameness of city streets to the wilds of West Yorkshire as the sun was sinking behind the horizon . . .
Rosebay Willowherb in the evening light. "Fireweed" as it is known across the Pond . . .
An abandoned field, now happy to be a wild flower meadow of the Umbelliferous sort!
Allotments and more masses of Buddleia and wild flowers. I loved the little brick and glass shed: turning nothing into something, with a dormer window no less!
Rocky outcrops up on the moorland.
Anyway, I am back home now, and have some writing-up to do, so watch this space.
