As the autumn draws its last breath and begins its transition to winter, the tree begins to glow an amazing highly saturated collection of colours. It starts with a green slowly transitioning to yellow and orange before the red leaves start to shine. I believe the tree to be a Japanese Maple Osakazuki.
Elsewhere in my garden the Heather is again starting to flower its delicate, pretty purple flowers.
The Infinity Bridge in Stockton-on-Tees is a Bowstring bridge, 1km downriver from Stockton Town Centre. No other bridge is known to have the same design.
The illuminations are what originally drew me to this bridge these where developed by the same firm who designed the lighting for the exterior of the Burj Al Arab luxury Dubai Hotel and provide a spectacularly bright colourful icon crossing the River Tees.
Leeds always has been, always will be my home. When you don’t see things day-after-day you start to notice the little nuances of familiar scenes, things that previously you ignored and walked past, often in a hurry, caught up in the hustle and bustle of life, slow down, take your time, like Frankie said, relax.
I recently went away on a weekend trip with some close friends to a lovely holiday lodge located at Augill Beck Park in Brough near Kirkby Stephen, Cumbria. The lodge was lovely, luxurious, large and spacious, comfortably sleeping 5 of us with plenty of room to spare for a few more.
The location suited a nice trip to Forrest-in-Teesdale on the Saturday to visit the High Force Waterfall, billed as one of the most spectacular waterfalls in England the group was not disappointed with what we found once we arrived.
