Walk made on 2nd June around Battlefield, Newcastle upon Tyne UK.
1 Wet weather; but one of the trees that were (mis)planted two years ago has survived and serves as a useful bike tether.
2 Oxford Ragwort (small petals). Taken to Oxford in the 18th century from the slopes of Vesuvius, it rapidly travelled around Britain spread by train and now car slipstreams. It grows without the need to find soil and with stands drought.
3 De Chirico's Turin. Not the weather, obviously.
5 You know you are old when the spray artists are getting older too.
6 Unlovely as it is, I think this building has something like character.
9 Grass cuttings.
12 Elderflower. Almost a weed, elder is a lovely, resiliant shrub
13 Will this footpath ever be restored to the public? I watch and wait.
16 Flower show.
19 You are now entering threatening Battlefield. Great isn't it?
21 I never seem to come across the horses from Stepney Bank stables. Their exercise paddock is a welcome addition.
25 Old friend fallen on hard times refuses to give in. That's right!
