Snow in April

It feels a bit bizarre posting these photos at the end of April now the weather in the UK has become considerably more seasonable, but here are a few from the beginning of the month when we had our last - and least dramatic - snowy patch. (The others were not conducive to leaving the house -  we tried a few times and made it a couple of hundred metres from the front door and realised what a grave mistake we were making.)

Headingley Bear Pit

A little while ago, someone I work with casually dropped into the conversation that Headingley had an old bear pit where they used to keep, you know, a bear. This was news to me and I was pretty indignant about it too, given that I used to live right by Headingley and also worked just round the corner for almost a year and never knew it was even there. So many wasted lunch hours! We finally managed to make a pit stop there the other day and have a little look around.

Kirkstall Abbey

Kirkstall Abbey has been top of my hit list of 'Places I Really Should've Visited After Living Here for Five Years, I Mean Really, It's Just Getting Silly Now' for a while now, and we finally made it at the end of February!

Golden Acre Park

Been remembering some more temperate times (during this very chilly week) when we met some Excellent Squirrels in Golden Acre Park. I yelled about grey squirrels a few years ago, and I'm still very charmed by their cheeky lil faces.

Welsh Mountain Zoo

Back in April we had a trip to the Welsh Mountain Zoo, which I really loved and took some top notch animal photos that I think are definitely worth sharing. However, because I'm me and I worry about this sort of thing, I just want to take a quick moment to talk about zoos in general before we look at the cute animals, because my feelings on them have changed quite a bit since April.
