In the middle of August, the North Yorkshire Moors transform into a sea of purple. The subtle perfume of the tiny purple flowers drifts in the wind heralding autumn.
The other side of the world, a month later, on a dusty hot roadside in the Goldfields, Western Australia, spring flowers burst into bloom.
The Seated Figure, a 3 metre high bronze sculpture by Paul Henry, is perched on Castleton Rigg in the North Yorkshire Moors. One hiker we met said in broad vernacular, ‘It’s bloody brilliant’. I agree. The man sits looking across Westerdale. Waiting or simply meditating on the stunning scenery?
