Greenhalgh Castle

"Greenhalgh Castle is a castle, now ruined, near the town of Garstang in Lancashire, England, within sight of the Lancaster Canal. Thomas Stanley, 1st Earl of Derby had the castle built in 1490 to provide defence for his estates around Garstang. The land on which the castle was built is said to be a gift to Stanley from his stepson Henry Tudor for his assistance in defeating Richard III at the Battle of Bosworth."

Flower of Honeysuckle (Lonicera)

"Honeysuckle: Lonicera - Honeysuckle produces a wonderful aroma in the evening making it particularly attractive to moths. Thrives in any moist, well-drained soil, but grows best in partial shade."

The River Wyre, shown above, winds its way near and under the Lancaster Canal right next to Garstang, finally ending up at Fleetwood and emptying into the Morecambe Bay area of the Irish Sea. (Not to be confused with the River Wye, which is located in Mid Wales)

Harebell Flower (Campanula rotundifolia)

 'Hope is Like A Harebell' by Christina Rossetti 

Hope is like a harebell, trembling from its birth,
Love is like a rose, the joy of all the earth,
Faith is like a lily, lifted high and white,
Love is like a lovely rose, the world's delight.
Harebells and sweet lilies show a thornless growth,
But the rose with all its thorns excels them both
