Monday 3 April 2017 – Along the Bridgewater Canal and Trans Pennine Trail


With Sue taking a period off work, she could join me on a short (18 km) bike ride along the canal to Stretford, then on the Trans Pennine Trail heading west to the Bay Malton, and home along the canal again.

A pleasurable hour on the bikes.

The canal towpath sports a few flowers that appear before I got around to taking photos last year. My entry from last July is here, and I’ve updated the slideshow here.

The following pictures demonstrate my continuing need to learn the art of taking pictures of flowers… Can anyone identify this one?


Here are some more from today’s ‘towpath offering’.




Speedwell – (‘Wood’, perhaps, or could it be ‘Slender’?)


A garden escape?


Green Alkanet


Lesser Celandine


Daffodil – I should have got to them earlier as they are fading fast in the dry weather.
