Back to the tower

DSC_0443The last time we walked up to here was at the very end of winter.  There was still a small amount of snow on the ground.  Now it is summer I was keen to see how different our town looks.  It is so green and lush everywhere.

DSC_0463The farmers have had trouble drying the grass to make hay bales this year because we have had so much rain.
