There comes a time in winter when the sheer length of it starts to become a burden. Day after day of cold weather is an unrelenting nightmare for some.
There is a bench in the park that was placed there in 2002 because of a bequest from the family of James Hyland who had enjoyed walking in Raymore Park. It is a quiet place to sit and reflect; a nice focal point and the location can be very photogenic at certain times of year.
Looking at some older shots of the bench I was reminded of the difference in vibrancy and colour that the growing season brings.
We are expecting a major winter storm over the next couple of days. Perhaps a good dumping of snow followed by sunshine will make the place look a bit less depressing – we can only hope.
