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




More photos from the field,


it’s no place to be if you have hayfever, the dog and I kicked up billowing clouds of pollen from the grass as we walked.


The field is not intensively farmed and it’s maintenance is pretty low key,  ‘cut and mucked’ and a whiz round with the chain harrow in the spring.

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. Uphilldowndale, there’s a blog award for you over at mine today. I’ve no idea if you ‘do’ blog awards but at least you’ll know how much I enjoy your photographs.


    • Well thank you JJ, that’s very kind. I’ve git a bit of a log jam of seasonal post in my head at the moment, it this sunshine, it’s such a novelty; so I’m not sure how long it might take me to respond.

  2. Very pr . . . ahCHOO . . . etty meadow. I can almost smell . . . ahhhhCHOO! . . . the grasses.

    My grandmother used to take me on walks through a meadow just like that. It did not immunize me to allergies. It did, however, make me terribly nostalgic for wildflowers and grasses billowing gently in the drowsy sun.

  3. The buttercups are so cute! I don’t think I’ve seen them before. Lovely captures.

Come on, join in.
