Orange, White and Green

9 Apr

The willow trees on Paragon Street are getting new surrounding walls and some fresh soil by the look of things. I hope the new walls are as comfortable to sit on as the old ones.

Trees at night

7 Apr

The new trees and seats on Jameson Street have ground level lighting so you don’t bump into them in the dark… did you know that some trees at night let themselves droop by up to four inches? And furthermore there are people being paid a good salary to find out more about this valuable titbit of information.
The ever fascinating and never drooping Weekend in Black and White is here.

The weekend in black and white is here.

Oh! we don’t want to lose you but we think you ought to go

13 Mar

The thing that has been littering  Queen Victoria Square for the best part of three months is due to depart next weekend as the year of glorious culture completes its first quarter (how time flies when you’re having fun, I mean, culture!). It is due to sneak its way back to east Hull some time on Sunday morning so I doubt I’ll be around to see it go nor, to be honest, will I miss it much. This view down Paragon Street shows there’s still work ongoing (hate that word) with plenty of our old friendly orange barriers in evidence and the place looking like a bomb has gone off.

O what made fatuous sunbeams toil …

The weekend in Black and White is here.

The Trees in Winter

16 Feb

Pearson Park in February without its greenery is still a pleasant enough place to while away a half hour or so. Just watch out for the geese, the mud and the poisonous blue-green algae in the pond, apart from that and the drunks it’s idyllic. I hear talk of a two million pound make over, with a bandstand (the drunks and junkies will like that somewhere to get out of the rain) a new conservatory and so on and the loss of fifteen trees … enjoy it while you can.

As the evening sky grew dark

There you go; tree, lights and an illuminated fountain. Who says I don’t do Xmas?
