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

Coast II


There is something special about the light down here in Devon (assuming the clouds part long enough to let the sun shine through, it is pouring with rain at the moment.)

Poppies on a pile of rubble;


and I do think you get a better class of rust at the seaside


Even the rock has a special sparkle


since you ask, it’s mica schist, formed as the result of intense pressure and heat acting on the original rocks during a collision of tectonic plates.

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. I would have to agree – excellent rust.

  2. The way life has been going lately I’m comforted by the notion that intense pressure and heat (metaphorical heat – our unseasonably cool weather continues) might turn me into an especially sparkly rock. Or classy rust. I could go either way.

  3. What beautiful flowers – and the rust is great too. Lovely photos.
