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

Singing in the Rain


singing in the rain 2

It’s raining, it’s raining ‘growing rain’, it seems ages since we had any and the garden was desperate for a drenching; the water butt that is fed by the run off from the barn roof was empty (and probably still is because I suspect there is a tennis ball stuck in the downspout) the odour of damp dog has returned to the kitchen as have the muddy footprints

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. A brief but vivid post, and terrific photo! xx

  2. Yes my collie is wet tonight after our run. Ages since that happened. But it topped up the pond

  3. One of your lovely silhouettes ~ with just a touch of a coloured beak! Very effective photo ~ and pleased to hear you were happy with the needed rain.

  4. Ooh yes, I hope my waterbutt is now replenished. I had used up nearly all the water in it by the weekend. It’s rare for it to get that low. I wonder how much is in there now. I must go and look.

Come on, join in.
