    Lovely pictures, especially of the white railings. I love York, whenever we have visitors from South Africa visiting we take them to see the Shambles and the beautiful Minster. Those snowdrops are gorgeous.

  2. Wow, great post, I love your pictures.

  3. I would be hard-pressed to choose a favourite from all those pics, but I really find the iron railings on the city wall particularly appealing. 🙂

  5. Great set of photos. Love the snowdrops of course..and always good to see a bird with a touch of unexpected colour. X

  6. Lovely collection! I love the snowdrops and the picture for J 🙂

    Lovely set of photos, I was very much “at home” with all the pictures of York. Well done.

  8. Lovely & I do love York. Do you realise your Mr. J. was “jumping” as well. The stained glass window is glorious. Take care.

  9. Love the snowdops and railings for white. We have a black bird visit the garden with white feathers round his neck, lovely to see your garden visitor:)

    • Thank you. I had been trying for ages to get his picture, and finally he stood still long enough for me to get one through the window. We have been following his adventures for a couple of years now, from aggressive youngster to older sedate blackbird, he has totally fascinated me.

    Lovely collection. I see your daffodils are about at the same stage as ours.

  11. Wow! Scagglethorpe – what a great name for a village! ❤

    • It is where I go for the family history group on a Friday, and one of the villages I had planned to do a post on last year, which just didn’t materialise. Our villages do have some wonderful names, don’t they?

  12. I do like to see how other people interpret the words; why didn’t I think of snowdrops and railings? Plenty round here. The photo that made me smile the most was Mr J! Are the ‘stepping stones’ sometimes surrounded by water?

    • I loved your take on the same words. Snowdrops were popular in this set. The stepping stones are in a ford and the picture was taken last Easter when we had a very dry winter and spring. They were taken in Goathland which featured as Aidensfield in the TV programme Heartbeat.

  13. Great set of pictures – snowdrops seem to be particularly good this year.

    Brilliant set of images and stories, glad you joined in X

  15. oooh! Fun! I’m off to visit the others!
    Mr J looks like the boy in the book “Where the Wild Thing Are” (Maurice Sendak) that I read to my son (now 36 yr old) Ian when he was small!

  16. Those pictures are all so pretty! Thank you:)

  17. what on earth is Mr J up to, with his balancing act lol?
