Walking in Pocklington
There are so many beautiful gardens and hedges and walls here.
I especially love the climbing plants. I think this is lilac on the balcony, but I'm not the most fabulous gardener, and I could be wrong.
Pocklington is a good place for walking holidays, which is actually a thing here in the UK. We are at the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds, which are the low hills in this area. There are lots of footpaths and bridle paths and cycling paths. A few days ago, Mira and I took a walk on one of the footpaths. It led us up onto a hill, where we had a beautiful view of the countryside, through a field with several draft horses grazing (including three foals), into Pocklington Wood and then between the wood and a golf course, and then back through the wood down to the fields we'd just been looking at from above. It was a nice 3 1/4 mile loop. I'm excited to do more walking.
