I was thinking this afternoon as I wandered around the park that I haven't shown you any park pics for a while,
I have still been taking them believe me, in fact dozens and dozens of them,
I need something to look back on when the park is closed,
something to have reference to when it re-opens in two years time.
When you say two years it seems such a long time , but when you consider how quick the time has gone since Gabe was born and he's two next month - it's not such a long time really.
Is it ?
I know that one in three trees are getting chopped down , will this one still be here I wonder..
With it's gnarled and twisted trunk..
Will the squirrels still run along this path in front of you or will they have gone to pastures new?
Will it still have the wild elements I love so much or will it be all neatly trimmed with weeded flowerbeds..
It's one of those things I'll just have to wait and see - unless I manage to sneak in sometimes maybe ?
I've still got a little while left though as there is going to be a centenary closing day in August but I think it's not actually closing until September.
If anyone is interested there are a lot of pics in my Barnes Park Blog , just click on the bandstand picture in the right hand column.
