A Mammoth is a large extinct elephant with a hairy coat and curved tusks.
On my day out 'photo hunting' with my friend Loretta I found this one on top of Mammoth Hill at the Watermead Country Park , Birstall. He was quite happy to pose for me, lol.

Watermead is a two mile long park, with a wetland area and lakes. An ideal spot for walking, fishing, cycling, picnics, birdwatching and watersports. Plenty ducks and swans on the lake, and loads of dragonflies. It is adjacent to the canal and a river.

Garden Corner

This is how this corner of the garden looks now after the removal of the hedge and the putting up of the fence. Earlier pics in the blog show how it looked a few months ago. It has been a lot of hard work and could have been achieved much earlier if the weather had been better. We have had a terrible year so far for rain. Hope we get some summer weather soon.

In the front of the Unknown Garden there was a line up of hollyhocks in various colours.
I took this one because it looked a bit on the shy side and still not fully open.

Unknown Garden

While on a day out and about I saw this garden and thought it looked wonderful so I just had to take a photo of part of it.
