Nature at its best in South Leeds.
Ignoring the forecast of rain, we ventured out to Middleton Park. Sad to say I’ve lived with the view of the park for 5 years but only visited once and I don’t think I’m alone in this.
There seems to be some great things happening in the park and a feeling that it’s not yet finished. It’ll look great when we humans have finished painting, building, planting and whatever else we plan on changing with our funding.
I walked around thinking, “I’d like a bin here, need a bench there” and felt a little downhearted by lack of maps and info.
It’s only after I downloaded the photos that I realised I’d missed the whole point of the park.
Forget what we human beings do to try and make nature fit into our idea of a park and just look at what nature has done…
