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

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.

  2. Oh, my. Such breathtakingly beautiful countryside you have the good fortune to live in! And oh, my again, such a jolly little puppy you have living with you, wagging his joy into each day. His name is simply a chuckle-y, perfect fit. :o)

  3. Miss Sadie and the Cowboy cannot imagine why I am laughing so hard. They have not done anything the least bit funny in hours and hours. Oh, that Spud. Such a boy.

    The landscape is a wonder. I especially like the way the tree and the wall zig and zag. I can almost hear the music.

  4. oh my goodness, came across your link by shear happenstance. Being an Anglophile, this will be a must read blog for me.
    Cheerioooooooo…. 🙂

  5. Terrific photos, especially the third one and of course the last one! xx

  6. Lovely photos – lovely day – delightful dog.

  7. Yes, yes we are Spud fans here! We are still thinking of getting another dog, and today a friend suggested ‘a nice steady Springer’. I don’t know how steady Spud is, yet, but I liked the advice very much .

Come on, join in.
