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

Eggceeding Expectations


Egg tulip

I pull out this photo each Easter, it’s as traditional as my Christmas tree lights, (my family will tell you I have a habit of repeating myself!)

I’ve already posted the story of why I thought it was a good idea to squeeze a double tulip inside an egg,  over at Vision and Verb

Sun, sleet, sun, showers, seems to be the running order for the  weather this Easter weekend. I’m off to eat chocolate.

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. Not too much chocolate now uphill
    Thats a strange kind a photograph but I think Im learning this photography lark. Taking pictures of what you wouldnt normally snap has been a revelation to me. I think I was always looking before for that perfect picture. You have passed on a few tips without knowing it

    Right im off for a run and take a picture of some daffodills, spring has truly arrived.

  2. such an awesome picture! very, very nice! 🙂

  3. Very cool capture, Uhdd! I’m still trying to figure out how you did that. Excellent post at V&V, too. We shall miss you.

  4. Toni I think Uphill used to be a florist

  5. Terrific photo ~ and a terrific idea about eating chocolate 😉

  6. Beautiful idea and photo and a great story over on Vision and Verb all rolled into one.
