Magic .To think that this was an old industrial site of pit dirt.

Nice to see one of your pics John, the field of Christmas trees we call it because of the Scot Pines.

Beautiful photo John. What is the Wutchie? (Not a Wiganer!)

Ive never seen as many buttercups that there are this year.
It looks like that someone as cut a path through the field.

Great photo. Lifts the spirits. Good to see that there are still "wild", unspoilt areas of town, amidst the urban sprawl.

A stroll into summer, fabulous, just what we need to pick up the spirits.

Not been round there for years. Used to walk the dog round there when it was first planted about 10yrs aago. All the saplings then were about 2 foot tall. It looks superb now...... and can only get better.
