Photo Essay: Burbage and Stanage Edge

I faced a choice today. I could be taken on a drive through the Peak District in the sun, or I could go to the Hardy Plant Society (HPS) talk tonight. I didn’t have enough spoons to do both. I love HPS talks and fellow plant enthusiasts are so friendly. But given the droll winter we have had, a cool beautiful blue sky sunny day was too much to pass up.

The photographs are from my mobile, so not the best quality, but I think you can see I made the right choice.

I feel very MECFS tired, but also very uplifted. Definitely the right choice.

  1. Absolutely the right choice, these crisp clear days have been a sad rarity this year, and I think ceasing the moment to boost the spirits with all that wide landscape under blue sky is well worth the price. I am sorry you can't do both though, I remember those choices all too well.
