A less interesting street

I haven’t been able to get out in the garden over the last week, so there is nothing to write about on this front. The boiler broke down again, which meant prime gardening time was taken up waiting for an engineer to come and sort it out!

Today, however, my daughter and I happened to be walking down a road where I used to park my car when I drove to work and something was different. Thus, I did a double take and realised the apple trees I remarked on back on September 2016 were no more.

True, the trees were too close to the house – but I was still saddened that with all the talk of how beneficial trees are, one road now looks a lot more barren.

I felt a bit cheeky taking a photo today, so you can’t see how a residential street in Leeds has become that bit greyer. However, it did make me all the more pleased to get home!

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.
