The nice flowers and grand arch caught my attention.
Tom Wilson: Built when civic pride was a real thing smile
Magnifique jardin avec l'arche dans le fond.
Tom Wilson: Merci, Martine.
Wonderful and colourful Tom! I like your presentation.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Richard.

I detect civic pride Tom
Tom Wilson: Along with the town hall and a couple of museums, just about all that is left of that Victorian ethic.

Spring has come to Sheffield. I like your edging
Tom Wilson: It certainly has, Lisl - the vignette is courtesy of Lightroom
The Victorians did many good things as well as less good ones
Tom Wilson: Sometimes the good is not interred with their bones smile
Funny how this reminds me of Bath Tom.
Tom Wilson: It would be one of the few parts of Sheffield that could, I think, Chad.
Not how you envisage Sheffield, Tom. Very nice.
Tom Wilson: A city of contrasts, Frank smile
Isn't that hard to believe! Very nicely done, Tom.
Tom Wilson: I'm hoping that the spring will now really begin!
This is rather nice Tom, especially with the vignette. BTW finally got to have my eyes tested today, new glasses in about 10 days I hope.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Brian - good news about the specs. I finish the eye drops on Thursday and will then call the optician about an appointment.
The English are so good at gardens...
Tom Wilson: I'm afraid that, generally, probably most people these days are not keen gardener smile
