A lovely springtime picture. This makes me quite homesick, but in a good way.

I`m disappointed with this, Ron, compared to the many photo`s taken in this area.
Phil Whitehead`s 5th April 2012 P-a-D for instance got 39 comments.

What a lovely photo Ron. I agree with Ellen, brings back lots of memories.

nice to see you out again Ron.... even though it has been bitter cold this easter there have been plenty walkers in the grounds of Haigh Hall... I appreciate all the photographs that are put on this site, it's the first thing i look at when i get up in the morning.... keep up the good work all you photographers !!!! a fantastic effort by all of you .. thanks.
