There's a small park in the heart of the city. A place of calm where I go to watch the squirrels and experience a few brief, soothing moments of nature. I took these photos a couple of weeks ago, before the strong winds, when the trees still had some autumnal colour.
Before we go through the gate though, I need you to listen to the song Pure Imagination from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It came into my head when I was thinking of a title for this post and has stuck around ever since. Go on, don't worry, I'll wait.
OK, ready? Then let's take a walk through the park. Come with me....
Hope you enjoyed your stroll through the park. The gate is just ahead but I'm going to linger awhile.
I may not be around much until the New Year as it's proving difficult juggling work and all the preparations and activities of the festive season. Really I want to say I'll be taking a bloggy break but am finding it hard to let go! I'll still be around and visiting you though and will be back to wish you a merry Christmas. See you then. xx
