Today, Malcolm and I made the most of a rare, warm and sunny morning, to take a walk around Shipley Park towards Osborne's Pond.  Wonderful to see the blue sky for a change and the sun was warm on our backs as we wandered across the delightful meadows on the Northern side of Shipley Hill.  The grasses are growing green and lush, making a fantastic wildflower meadow.
Getting down to a more 'grasshopper eye view' the Buttercups, Vetches, Sheep Sorrel, Docks and Clovers look absolutely magnificent and the grasses add an architectural quality to the scene.
Speaking of Buttercups, further along the path and just before we reached the path at the top of the hill, there was a plethora of these golden beauties, waving in the breeze.  Down at this level, you are aware of the buzzing of thousands of insects among the flowers too.

A wonderful morning for a walk!  Looks like we shall not be getting out tomorrow, if the forecast is correct.
