Coffee and Blossom

Today I have visited Ilkley for the first time in a couple of years. It was beautifully decked out in cherry blossom. Everything was so lovely and unlike the old song we managed B'ar tat.
Some places are timelessly beautiful and Ilkley is one of them. I loved Betty's tea shop, good coffee and good company.

Blooming Gorgeous

There are so many beautiful things in the world. I don't know if these are peonies or roses, it's hard to tell sometimes. Whichever species these are they are sumptuous.Grange fell is blooming with spectacular spring flowers. It's amazing to see the tulips and the daffodils in full flower at the same time.
We are hoping that when the fruit trees bloom that the wind doesn't steal the flowers like last year as we have lots of fruit later on in the year.

Sorry about the lack of blogs but I've had a P.C. virus, One of those weird ones  that re-arrange the order of the letters and turn everything into gobbleygook. No Comments please.
We are enjoying a lovely Bank holiday weekend Skipton is buzzing. It's the waterways festival and Skipton races. The Canal is packed with barges and boats decorated for the event. It feels like summer is finally here.
