This is Lidgett Lane Larder in Leeds 8, a popular cafe serving home-made and locally sourced food. It is also an Art Gallery! Step inside this month, have a cup of tea and see a small exhibition of my tree pictures. Paintings, prints and cards will be for sale.
Waterloo Lake in Roundhay Park, Leeds. These are views from the North end,

View from the living room window.
This is back-to-back housing in Leeds,

and have neighbours on 3 sides.
A local bar in Chapel Allerton, LS7.
My new view walking home, looking across Chapel Allerton Park. I moved across the border to Leeds 7 a few weeks ago. The house is on a very steep hill but so far I’ve only fallen over once. There are lots of dogs and cats here.

It’s dark at 4 o’clock.
The willow tree is adorned with fairy lights
for the festive season.
Cars and people are on the move and
I’m drawing in a doorway.

Leeds – like I’ve never seen it before!
The trees in the foreground are along the edge of Soldier’s Field, Roundhay Park. On the far right, you might just make out the Parkinson Building.
Had to stand on top of step ladders leaning against the ivy hedge for this one, it took nearly an hour. Managed not to lose balance or get arrested for snooping.
