Good morning, everyone!
Yesterday was yet another lovely sunny autumnal day, comfortably warm in the afternoon but nowhere near warm enough to go out without arm covering first.  Suits me - I dislike getting hot and sweaty which is maybe why swimming appeals - yes, I get hot but the water cools me and any sweat is washed away.

Yesterday afternoon I had a lovely stroll around a pary of the Greenway.
The Greenway is a circular path that goes more or less right round the Garden City, designed to be fully accessible for walkers, wheelchairs, bicycles, etc, with interesting stopping off points (such as Standalone Farm) and starting points for other walks.  It's just under fourteen miles in length (no way I would tackle that) but can be done in reasonable 'chunks'.

I have no idea how far I went - maybe a couple of miles altogether - sauntering along, enjoying the peace and the country views, nodding happily to other users and discovering an orchard just off route.  I asked Dad about it and he told me that it is a communal orchard for anyone to go and pick from, planted a while ago by the Garden City Corporation.  That being so, I intend to go back today and pick some but yesterday, not knowing that, I was tempted but behaved myself.

Here's a link to a map of the Greenway (scroll down to the last page).

Today should be another gentle day and I'm looking forward to it.  I hope yours is pleasant too.


  1. The garden/park looks lovely and yesterday was gorgeous so you really chose the right day

  2. It was a beautiful afternoon. Is it as nice down your way?


  3. It sounds like a lovely community place - weather here has been dismal - ended up putting some new plants in the border in the rain!

  4. At least you won't have to water them in so much. :-)
