Early Morning Sun

Even in these troublesome times with the increased lockdown restrictions here in the UK it is always good to get out in some early morning sunshine. I make no apologies for posting the image above twice.

We’ve recently had a small group of Redwings on our route so I did a drawing of one to put on a card for my husband’s birthday last week. It really is quite nice to be able to create your own cards, though I would have liked more notice that the card shops were going to be closed! 


I have mentioned before that we are fortunate to be able to walk along a trail that goes almost from the centre of Leeds to the outskirts. It follows Meanwood Beck that has in the past had a number of industrial uses. There are the remains of lime kilns as well as mills and other buildings. There has been a water mill at one point along there since the 13th Century. So in light of our increased lockdown restrictions and the lovely early morning light yesterday, I thought I’d post some walk photos.
