These cherry trees line the footpaths of The Stray in Harrogate and always remind me of home, especially when they are in blossom.

The Stray is an area of open parkland some 200 acres (800,000 m²) in size that runs through the centre of the town. The Harrogate Stray was created in 1778 by an act of Parliament. The act fixed the size of the Stray at 200 acres (0.8 km2), and even now when part of it is removed, due to road expansion etc, it must be replaced elsewhere. During the Victorian period, part of the Stray hosted a racecourse for horses. It was created to link together most of Harrogate's springs in one protected area. Now people use it for picnics, kite flying and football.
