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.

Sunday afternoon, Roundhay Park

Sunday afternoon, Roundhay ParkThe last day of the summer holidays…
warm, sunny and showery.
Walking and scooting round the lake,
having a good time and
eating ice cream,
feeding the ducks and
holding hands,
looking at the clouds and
drawing pictures.
