Yorkshire Colour Contrast

Yorkshire Colour Contrast

A dull day traipse over the moors from Grassington.

A walk which I’m sure would be lovely

if the sun were shining and the skylarks were soaring.

As it was,

my legs were stretched and

my brain power exercised just a little finding my way around.

Lead mines littered the area.  The most significant sights were those of industrial heritage.

Harlow Carr

Down a little from moors towards Harrogate, made rich when lead and wool were important commodities,

the RHS at Harlow Carr splashes colour across the landscape.

Deep reds and bright yellows transformed trees.

Dahlias hanging in till the first frosts

Alpines and aconites keeping themselves away from marauding weather.

I’d never been to Harlow Carr before and did wonder if mid October would reveal it at it’s best.  I wasn’t disappointed.
