Friday we had a break in the weather, needing some fresh air and space I headed to the hills.
I can see Baildon Moor from my house, at the bottom of the garden you can just see it through the gap in the houses.
I imagine the sea is just on the other side...
To the right of us I use the hill as a weather gage, if I can see them the washing goes out, if I can't see them , then I know it's going to rain...
I hadn't gone to look for anything particular but just to enjoy the colour of the Heather was enough..
and the open sky..
Baildon golf course weaves it 's way through the moor..
The moor is matted with Bracken so I was surprised to find some (new to me) wild flowers.
This is a large plant with lovely pink flowers..
Then I looked round this one open spot to see what else there was that was pink....
Many rushes in the boggy areas, I hope to learn more about these next year..
This is were I spotted another new plant growing .
And many Grasses to learn about..
In the distance you can see the hills are covered in Heather which is flowering at the moment, here along the edge of the golf course were patches of bright pink Heather....
I could sit amongst the Heather all day..
There are many paths and places to walk, on the way back to the car I followed the stream which was full of Round-leaved Mint or Apple Mint (same plant)
There is a stream under this lot somewhere...
It's nice spending time amongst the Bracken looking for pink...
