Best time of year

This must be the best time of year for getting out in our parks. Visibility is at its peak, balsam, bracken and nettles are still hiding, and the bulbs are just coming through. Picture is snowdrops at Alexandra Park, and daffs will be close behind.

Who knew ?

Worsley Woods is in beautiful condition at the moment.  The photo shows the info board looking across to the Aviary.  Did you know that the Aviary was built to be a hunting lodge, and the woods were planted to provide something to hunt in – so all the old trees are actually the same age !
