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

Caption Competition


I’m lost for words, so you write them.

Location, frosty field, February morning, the cast, a rook and ewe; here is the story board.

Frosty friends-2 


Field talk 2-2

Author: uphilldowndale

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.
