It’s the Easter weekend, and the last day of the month of March. It’s been a cold and dark March this year.
I’ve been looking through my vast collection of images from many walks in Yorkshire in springtime in previous years. Thought I’d share some, of fields, paths, churches, Yorkshire in springtime sunshine, in the hope of bringing cheer. They’re enlargeable to a more impressive size.
Early March 2010, a walk from Coneysthorpe, Castle Howard area. Predominantly brown. This year it still looks predominantly brown in late March. Here’s hoping for green soon.
Here’s some. A walk from Millington to Great Givendale, early March 2007. Beautiful contoured land, beautiful green …
It all wakes up properly in April. A planting of spring bulbs, at the top of Castle Howard Station Road, 17 April 2011
The church at Crayke, April 2011
Handsome 18th century church at Brandsby, April 2011
And a path through the zingy yellow –
Somewhere up near Garrowby Hill, May 2010
And dreaming of this kind of thing: perfect green and a path through the trees. Sledmere, May 2006
