Heather on Adel Moor, Alwoodley, Leeds. Aug 24 2020.

Post by Leodian »

Many plants/trees in Leeds seem to have done very well this year. For example an oak tree on the Alwoodley Village Green has masses of acorns far more than I recall ever seeing in previous years. Blackberries seem abundant. Despite having a problem very early with severe brown patches on their leaves horse chestnut trees have reasonable numbers of conkers. During a stroll on August 24 2020 I went onto Adel Moor (Alwoodley) and the heather was a gorgeous sight so I have attached a photo that I took.

On last night's Harold Bird Show (AKA BBC Look North) paultheweatherman showed a pic of glorious heather near Bolton Abbey and said the recent wet weather was the cause
