The lanes are full of  the foaming flowers of cow parsley

and hawthorn

As  creamy and frothy as a bucket of fresh milk, but cast aside all  romantic notions of fair skinned milk maids and check out the reality of dairy farming over at Lavenderjack

Watching the rhythm of rural life, from the top of a hill in northern England. Having spent most of my life avoiding writing, I now need to do it! I am no domestic goddess, but if I were expecting visitors to my home, I would whisk round with the duster and plump up the cushions and generally make the place look presentable. I hope that by putting my words where others may see them it will encourage me to ‘tidy up and push the Hoover around’ my writing. On the other hand I may just be adding to the compost heap. Only time will tell! Pull up a chair, sit yourself down, I’ll put the kettle on.

  1. Well done. I’ve always found trying to get the feeling of fine detail across really difficult on web images, as they are so small, but I think you’ve done a good job here.

  2. It a big cow parsley year round here too. I liked the picture of the lane. I could feel the cool.

  3. Lovely, I just wish my hawthorn had flowered this year. xx

  4. I love the first photo of the small road leading into your lovely light and green world…..
