Of the three short journeys on 6 May, one was by bike, in the evening, towards New Earswick and Huntington. A glowing evening after a warm sunny day. A few photos …
The trees on the Wigginton Road side of the old Rowntrees site, near Crichton Avenue bridge, are stunning, a beautiful mixture. I often admire them when we’re sitting in traffic, and thought I’d admire them close up. Above, copper beech. Soft new leaves, just unfurled to greet the spring.
Another of the Wigginton Road trees, a maple, apparently Acer platanoides (purple variety). Perhaps bringing some spring cheer to people sitting in the traffic queues.
Branching off from the official cycle track across Bootham Stray is this wonderful green tunnel, which skirts one side of New Earswick and ends up at the Link Road bridge junction, and must be where the trains used to run before the Market Weighton line was closed. (This one can be enlarged, should you wish.)
And in the heart of New Earswick, on Chestnut Grove, trees full of blossom.
