Leeds – Liverpool Kirkstall Valley Canal Nature Photos

Hi, it’s Greenygrey. Our tour of greenygrey photos today leads south to our current September sunshine on the Leeds-Liverpool canal Kirkstall Valley towpath, including some that could be classified as those rare, exquisite and precious ‘Greenygrey Folding Mirrors’.

Marc Latham’s newest Folding Mirror poem was inspired by a run along the Leeds-Liverpool canal on a gloriously Brontesque greenygrey morning, as new green plants on the ground were complimented by swirling ominous rain clouds in the sky.
Taupe, arsenic, slate and charcoal are all types of grey, while lime and pear are types of green:  Wikipedia list of colours.

and overcast arsenic sky
lime sunny hills provide sweet filling pie.
Pear shade fields are ideal for engineers
to separate slate canal
and raging river charcoal.
