Whispering Willows

This part of the 'used to be a canal' walk is by the river Cole (which surfaces from underground near this point) and is usually a place of great tranquility.
A place that I frequently walk in my lunch-beak to clear my head and make contact with the elements. Butterflies,bees, dragonflies and birds (particularly blackbirds) are often spotted. Nature will survive in the most unlikely of places - this peaceful spot has a Car-Mart on one side and a recycling yard on the other. The river runs under a little bridge and for some unfathomable reason some odd people choose to throw shopping trolleys into the water. This is particularly strange as there are no supermarkets nearby so it must take considerable effort to dispose of a shopping trolley in such a fashion.
