We are blessed to live in a city with a wonderful park right in the centre of it. We should give thanks to those who had the foresight and determination to protect an area of green in the city and ensure its status as a world class park, for all to enjoy. Today it is rainy, miserable and grey, so these pictures taken very recently are a little reminder of how quickly things can change.
We should enjoy the natural beauty we have around us and protect it, whether its a grand city park, a stand of majestic trees or green corridor, or a tiny nature reserve in our own neighbourhoods. Without us caring, the next day it might be gone, all in the name of “progress”, replaced with a car parking lot, a shopping mall or a cookie-cutter housing development.
