Another cold, drab and nasty May day. Malcolm and I were not entirely certain we wanted to have a long walk this morning. But, as we headed further around Shipley Park we kept pushing on a bit further and ended up doing a good long walk up the hill to the Old Hall site. What a good job we did! The Bluebells are at their best and the Rhododendrons and Azaleas are opening their flowers in huge numbers as if to 'thumb their noses' at the bad weather.
The woodland floor is carpeted in a breathtaking display of blue.
