Question: is polldaddy any relation to crawdaddy? and is there a pollmummy?
Su, you’ve got me. I’ve been trying to think of a witty reply to your questions but words have failed me. Terry
Of course I have to say Woodhouse Moor, Woodhouse Square and Park Square are my favourite green spaces in central Leeds, recreational places for me since childhood, the Autumn Acers in Park Square I use for my Gravatar.
I loved Gledhow Valley Woods for many years when I lived in Harehills. You never knew what you’d find down by the lake there – herons, jays, water voles…..one time a burning twokked car…..never a dull moment really. Terry
Well – it’s MEANWOOD park of course – with the Beck and the trail. It’s natural and part of it is like a forest too.
Wow – I may try and take a pic before the 24th!
