As the saying goes "As pretty as a picture"..it's just lovely. Thank you Ron.


Comment by Kath H on 4th June 2018 at 08:53
Beautiful picture. I always knew it as The Lily pond.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 4th June 2018 at 11:14
Nice Spring pic Ron.


Comment by Anne on 4th June 2018 at 11:32
In the pink! most certainly.


Comment by Mick on 4th June 2018 at 11:52
I took a better one than this, its looking the other way and shows the fountain and big wheel


Comment by irene roberts on 4th June 2018 at 12:31
Very happy memories of very special days.x.


Comment by Veronica on 4th June 2018 at 14:39
I remember being able to sit on the low wall- I have a photo doing exactly that in the sixties - must put it on one of these days. The greenhouses are in the background as well.


Comment by Veronica on 4th June 2018 at 14:52
I should imagine Ron took this shot to show the beauty of the trees especially the cherry blossom and the water feature and reflections! It's a really good picture.


Comment by Philip G. on 4th June 2018 at 15:19
A smashing photo of much to like Ron, but there's no doubt as to what the star of the show had been.
I also like the fountain's spray, as it cascaded amongst those very much taller trees, yet sympathize with the sober mid grey-green cast of the small rooftop on the right as it tried in vain to hold the surrounding dizzy greens on a tight rein, … . Thanks.


Comment by Ken R on 4th June 2018 at 15:41
Nice photo Ron, and Mick you're a glutton for punishment


Comment by ivor biggun on 4th June 2018 at 16:30
Mick, Nobody cares, Thought you always said it wasn't a competition, You need to grow up or go away from here.


Comment by Pat on 4th June 2018 at 18:20
A lovely photo, well done.
Mick please put your photo on then we can judge for ourselves!


Comment by Susan on 4th June 2018 at 19:14
Pat,I wouldn't even want to look at his photo..he's just no tact at all and very ignorant...no finesse.


Comment by Fred Mason on 4th June 2018 at 19:41
What an excellent photo.

I have never seen anything as good as that one.

Well done, Ron. Well taken.


Comment by Pat McC on 4th June 2018 at 21:23
What a beautiful photograph Ron. I wish I had your talent for capturing such beauty. I never mastered the box brownie!j

I was looking forward to Poet’s contribution, his poetic descriptions bring an extension to the photograph.


Comment by David on 4th June 2018 at 23:48
Nice one Ron. Lovely spring scene with lots of people enjoying the park.


Comment by Poet on 5th June 2018 at 07:08
Ron's marvellous photo speaks for itself in capturing what I remember of the magic of Haigh Hall, but may I offer for Pat a small trifle.

Under mists of salmon blossom
The sounds of summer teem
With the cries of children calling
For Lyons Maid ice-cream.
As the hiss and plash of the fountain,
Showers the tin of the pool,
"Mam, can we have another
Just so we may keep cool".
