Snow and No School

Friday Afternoon, Snow and No School. The watercolour painting shows a park on slope in the snow and people out playing, talking and sledging. January 2021

Despite the ongoing difficulties, people of various ages have
been out enjoying the snow.
Or in my case, watching people of various ages enjoying the snow…
This was last Friday afternoon, in Chapel Allerton Park, LS7.
And it was a beautiful day.
