Watching nature take its course, from the top of a hill in northern England

Black and Tan



Black and tan 

It has been a beautiful clear evening


after the best part of a week sitting under hazy skies,

mooving on

you could see for miles

Clear evening

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. Is there any wonder you’re in love with this landscape? That second image – I want to turn it into a weaving. I’d like to hear its story someday when you’re in the mood.

  2. Browning’s poem, “Home Thoughts, From Abroad” came to mind when I saw your marvelous view for miles and miles ~ and the stone walls…lovely

    Oh, to be in England
    Now that April’s there,
    And whoever wakes in England
    Sees, some morning, unaware,
    That the lowest boughs and the brushwood sheaf
    Round the elm-tree bole are in tiny leaf,
    While the chaffinch sings on the orchard bough
    In England -now! …

  3. I love that second photo and wish that it was a view that I could wake up to every morning! xx
