Fountains Abbey Visitor Centre (Fisheye)

A month or so ago we took our last visit of the season to Fountains Abbey for a walk. This is a shot of the main visitor centre taken with a fisheye lens.

We shall return there! Once the (often) punishing North Yorkshire winter has done its worst. March just can’t come around too soon. 

Better late than never

This month there are lots of flora and fauna springing to life. At Thorp Perrow arboretum at Bedale, North Yorkshire the daffodils were a couple of weeks late but just now the place is positively carpeted with them.

I found this colourful scene at RHS Harlow Carr near Harrogate. I don’t know what the flower is and I don’t know what the insect was, I just know it caught my eye.
