Nice place to sit with a flask when everyone has gone to work and the kids are at school. Bet there's a nice breeze as well. Thanks Mick, good one again.

Does the land really slope like that, makes me feel dizzy !

A lovely vista nevertheless.

Looks like somebody has already left some plastic bottles behind if I'm not mistaken....

The type of Wigan country scene that cannot be mistaken for anywhere else.

The benches are for the dead people of Wigan, thats why you can see one with a bunch of flowers next to it.
Theres a lot of benches and its the highest spot at three sisters so you get a good view of the west Pennines moors

A nice Photo of a nice area Mick; it conjures-up memories too. I once took my nephew and niece there, as they wanted to do some Butterfly Hunting. They netted numerous 'blues of the same variety', which I had down as being Chalkhill Blues. But as there had been so many in number, and after consulting an A-Z some time later, decided that they would more likely have been Common Blues. I still have the net that they had used, in my garden shed.

Mick. I hope that you find my rhyme ok - all in the name of a fun, of course. Thanks.

Oh Marina, sweet and tender fair,
Let me calm your trembling hand
Beside the fox's lair.

Oh Howard! rough on pasture's dip,
My trembling's borne of comfort lost,
Please watch your 'cycle clip.

My 'clip's now flung some distance aft,
I tender soft "How's that?"
Now gently tease yourself, my way,
But mind the dewy 'pat.

Mick I think you could have phrased that better- 'benches for dead people'! I sincerely hope not. You must mean the benches are in memory of certain people who have died.
That's okay then.

'The benches are for dead people'.
Absolutely priceless Mick.

Philip, in the name of fun I hope you don't mind if I carry on your rhyme.

Ho Howard dear it's far to late
My bum's already in it
Please lend to me your handkerchief
To wipe my rear this minute.

Not up to your standard Philip, but I'm trying.

Excellent DTease, most excellent.

Today's poems made me giggle. Who needs booze, thank you boys.

Looks like an oldish photo, leaves on the trees.
